About the Speaker


Brian Sullivan is a developer analyst for Falcon Applications, LLC in Shreveport, LA.  He got his start in programming maintaining legacy mainframe applications in COBOL at a large trucking company, but quickly realized he needed to find a more productive environment in order to stay sane.  He jumped at the opportunity to help transition some of those COBOL applications to .NET, and he hasn’t looked back since. He has been working with Microsoft technologies for about 5 years, and is interested in increasing the exposure of agile techniques and methodologies in the Microsoft developer community.  He currently runs the Shreveport .NET User Group and speaks frequently at local user groups and regional conferences. Brian is a graduate of Harding University in Searcy, AR.

Presentation: Introduction To Silverlight

Abstract: Silverlight is a powerful development platform for creating engaging, interactive experiences for web, desktop, and mobile applications, both online and offline.  In this presentation, Brian will highlight some of the features that make Silverlight a unique development platform, discuss why you might (or might not) choose Silverlight for your next application, and dive into the process of creating a Silverlight app, from laying out your UI in XAML to calling web services to access your data.
