Over the past two weeks, I have been travelling with my colleague Jamie Wakeam across Canada conducting a half-day presentation on how to build Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) on the Microsoft platform.  I want to thank everyone who came to our briefings in Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto - the response to the event was overwhelming and we were very happy that it hit on the right topics for you as solution providers.

The topics for this briefing were:

  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
  • ASP.NET 3.5 (specifically the AJAX and MVC components)
  • Silverlight 2
  • Internet Explorer 8

For those of you who were unable to join us, not to worry!  There are a few tricks up our sleeve to make sure you can get the information as well.  Over the next little while, we will be recording screencasts of the content we presented so you can view the presentation online.  Stay tuned for a future blog post with the links to these presentations.  In addition to this, we will be conducting a webcast on the content we presented for the Internet Explorer 8 component of the talk on Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 2:00PM ET.  You can register for this webcast here.

In addition to these resources that will be made available, you can also download the presentation and associated demo code we showed here.
