Great Silverlight 2 Demo: Healthcare Demonstrator

Great Silverlight 2 Demo: Healthcare Demonstrator

  • Comments 19

Congratulations to Martin Grayson and team for building one of the smartest Silverlight 2 demonstrations I've seen to date. I saw parts of this demo a month ago when I was in the UK, and I'm delighted it's now released.

Whether or not you're involved in the healthcare sector, this demo does a great job of showing how Silverlight 2 can transform web-based application development. We're already starting to see many real-world applications using Silverlight 2, even in its beta 1 stage; I'll post a list of the best ones I've collected before the end of the week. With a beta 2 release not far away, momentum is continuing to grow. And keep an eye on this blog first thing Friday morning for a separate exciting announcement (he said elusively)...

  • The demo shows patient charts using Deep Zoom, which implies that Deep Zoom content can be created programatically (rather than by hand in DZ Composer).  Is that actually the case?

  • Sure! Check out the SparseImageTool.exe command-line utility in the DZ Composer directory, for example. We'll come out with less clunky solutions than shelling out to a command-line process over time, of course.

  • Trying to get in a habit of doing these when I get up and before getting into work. Design Patterns/DI

  • Max: If it helps, I published a sample on my blog about using the SparseImageTool...check it out! :)

  • Thanks Giorgio and Tim, that's going to be very handy.

  • Very impressive, silverlight is looking better and better

    This is going to be a long night. Now is that Pacific time or Eastern time or UK Time? :-)

  • Great app!  IE uses 418,000KB RAM for this.  Hmmm.

  • What happened to Friday morning news?

  • Sorry to keep you on your toes, Ben - we delayed our plans slightly. Now aiming for Monday morning...

    No problem Sir!

    Thanks for the reply.

  • Check out my thoughts on how I think Silverlight 2.0 is part of a clever strategy to get a subscription-based Windows Live PC on Macs and other devices.

    Does it make any sense? :)

    Without seeing the code behind and since I do not have a working knowledge of Silverlight may I ask, are those web parts I see within the canvas?

    I was wondering when we'd see something like this app.

    The medical profession should like this!

    Best Regards,
