1 GETTING DOWN TO “BRASS TACKS” Scott J. Peterson, MCSD, MSP+SB, MCT Silverlight as the Key to Developer Dominance bool getAClue = DateTime.Now;

2 The Skinny Why should we care? What are the scenarios? What are the options? What are the tools? Where do we go from here? int totalAnswers = (effort > 0) ? lots : little;

3 The “Reach” of Current Microsoft Technologies var illuminati = (from mind over matter select mind where matter != matters).ToList(); Internet 17% Mobile 8% Intranet 34% Desktop 22% Entertainment 19% Windows Embedded XNA ASP/HTML/WPF ASP/HTML WPF Silverlight

4 Where Technology “Sits” var illuminati = (from mind over matter select mind where matter != matters).ToList(); Government and Education 17% Business 39% Private 14% General Public 24% Unknown 6% Silverlight

5 Why Should We Care? Silverlight is installed on over 2/3 of the computers, worldwide Over 600,000 developers are actively creating solutions with Silverlight Silverlight is the ONLY technologies that touches: – All platforms – All sectors // Required to initialize variables

6 What Does It All Mean? Most opportunities exist within businesses and organizations More companies have standardized or will standardize on Microsoft technologies than any other single company Design and development skills transfer to all toolsets and most languages

7 ? D-E-M-O ¿ string subTitle = “Goodbye Blue Monday”

8 What Are the Scenarios? Develop for a specific sector Develop for a specific platform Develop for a “vertical” Develop something just for fun Develop something that encompasses all these elements Int64 watching = (for pigs on the wing).IEnumerable().Count();

9 What Are the Tools? Visual Studio Expression Blend 4 switch {developer.BodyType}

10 ? D-E-M-O ¿ binding.MaxBufferSize = ; // int's max size

11 What Is It About Silverlight? The new control types/XAML are becoming the standard Easiest way to start understanding all target audiences and all platforms It’s integrated (or soon will be) into all Microsoft Enterprise products The “reason” may change but the tools/technology are here to stay

12 How to Dominate Write an application for yourself Write an application for someone else Write an application for Windows Phone Write a “business-centric” application Create applications in “the cloud” Create web services Force yourself to learn and use LINQ

13 Lancelot LINQ Start using LINQ or expand your LINQ techniques Work hard to use LINQ to SQL Work hard to use LINQ to Objects Ignore professional comparisons of loops vs. LINQ {XElement anyone?}

14 ? D-E-M-O ¿ bool doesZeppelinDoDisco = (haveYouHeardTheCrunge * (E = mc 2 ));

15 Free For All (this page intentionally left _blank) this.Untested += new RoutedEventHandler(friday_WithBeer);

16 ? D-E-M-O ¿ XNamespace listNamespace = new whatIsAndWhatShouldNeverBeClient(_common.getKnowledge(_contentTypeHubUrl));

17 Anyone? SPSecurity.RunElevated(delegate() { holy, guacamóle }); 問題,任何人?
