WPF and Silverlight animations

Billy Hollis is a well known consultant and author. This week we get down to brass tacks and discuss why, from Billy Hollis’ perspective, smart clients/RIA applications are necessary in the first place. Here are some of the topics we cover:

Silverlight in business applications?

– It makes more sense than you might think. Billy has a simple and elegant point that I hadn’t thought of before.

Why isn’t HTML good enough?

– HTML isn’t cutting it for the latest and greatest web applications. Billy explains why.

Why are web technologies (like ASP.NET) so popular lately?

– It’s often not a technical reason.
