My talk at the Launch of the Vancouver Silverlight User Group

Last week I did a presentation for the Launch of the new Vancouver Silverlight User Group ( I had a touch screen laptop so I started my presentation with the Multi Touch Silverlight Puzzle demo, wow effect guaranteed!

So 80 people were Rickrolled this night! You can download and try this demo from this link:


My presentation was mostly inspired by this awesome MIX10 session:
Microsoft Silverlight 4 Business Applications by Scott Morrison


I showed only 2 slides and then built a live demo in Visual Studio 2010 during almost 2 hours, showing:

  • DataGrid enhancements
    • Filter
    • Grouping
    • Sorting
    • Paging
  • DataBinding enhancements
  • DataForm and custom template
  • Charting
  • Right-Click and custom Context Menu
  • Implicit Styles / Themes
  • Fluid UI
  • Clipboard
  • Drop Target
  • Webcam / mic
  • WCF RIA Services
  • Printing

Download code

To run this code you need Visual Studio 2010 (Express is ok), Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio and the latest version of the Silverlight toolkit (note that all these downloads are free).
