Do you have questions about Silverlight?  Shawn’s the person to ask.  He’s full of Silverlight knowledge, and he’s coming to Portland to have a conversation with us.  Shawn is extremely well known and respected in the Silverlight community, and it’s going to be a real treat to have him.  If you want to have a complex and nuanced discussion about Silverlight, join us for this meeting.
