Deep Fried Bytes Episode 9: A Practical Look at Silverlight – Part 1

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Podcast | Posted on 11-08-2008

The Olympics are upon us and NBC has been making a lot of waves about having 2,000 hours of streaming Silverlight video available online. This is a great time to catch up on your Olympic Badminton and other sports online that don’t get a lot prime time coverage.  Yesterday I actually did watch a match of Olympic Badminton only to realize that I missed my Olympic dreams.  I seriously used to be really good at Badminton and think I could have played in the Olympics based on what I saw.  Before that I got to watch some basketball where Lebron and Kobe put on one heck of a slam dunk show over the Chinese.

In celebration of the Olympics and their use of Silverlight, in Episode 9 of Deep Fried Bytes we talk Silverlight with Shawn Wildermuth.  We call it a “practical” look because what you will hear is what I think is a very down to earth discussion about where Silverlight fits into a developers bag of tricks and more importantly where it doesn’t.  I guess you can call it guidance on some level.  Shawn’s a wealth of knowledge as you’ll find out when you listen to the show.  Best of all, he’s from the South and loves anything Deep Fried.  We hope you enjoy this episode.
