Silverlight 5 Thoughts with Brian Goldfarb, Ward Bell and Adam Kinney!


Recorded December 2, 2010


At the Silverlight 5 Firestarter, we were able to record a spectacular show with some Silverlight luminaries.  It’s a great peak into what’s coming in Silverlight.   The people we grabbed:

Here’s what we talk about:

  • What’s striking about Silverlight 5?
  • How do the 3D APIs balance against the more enterprise features?
  • How did Out of the Browser come about in Silverlight 3?
  • Some hints as to the direction of future Silverlight development.
  • Kelly goes back in time to talk about the Kinect and make predictions about today.
  • What will the impact of New User Interfaces be on the development process?
  • Things to focus your career on.
