Microsoft VP Scott Guthrie Inverview at the Silverlight Firestarter


Recorded December 2, 2010

For this show, we were able to catch up with Scott Guthrie at the Silverlight Firestarter.  He was kind enough to give us an interview, and we asked all of our Silverlight 5 questions.  Including: 

  • A lot of folks tuned into the keynote.  Scott gives a sense of how many people were watching from home.
  • What is Scott’s favorite Silverlight 5 feature?
  • Can you write a 3D accelerated first person shooterwith the new Silverlight 5 API?
  • What is the best way to get up to speed with the Silverlight 5 3D API *right now*?
  • Some surprising info: don’t thinking of the Silverlight 3D API as a 3D API…. think of it as a GPU API (insert posibilities here…).
  • See the Silverlight 5 keynote here.
