Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

I don't really have a break until after SharePoint Saturday D.C.  Once the break occurs I am going to upgrade my VM with .Net 3.5 (finally get it to stick).  Then I am going to write a WCF webservice that will pull data from profile services and search.  Plus maybe some image library information for fun.  I want to build a ton of controls using Silverlight as the front end and SharePoint as the back end.  Check back here in about a month or so for some interesting experiments.  I will probably post these experiments on CodePlex.  At that time I am hoping to upgrade my entire VM to Silverlight 3.0, which is backwards compatible with Silverlight 2.0.  I spoke with Chris Koenig briefly at SharePoint Saturday Tulsa about some functionality in Silverlight 3.0 and it sounded really cool and interesting.  Some of the sketch interface additions sounds really cool.  Plus it looks like you can finally drag and drop some of the data controls that you could not in Silverlight 2.0 without referencing specific assemblies.  I was pretty impressed by the brief discussion I had with Chris.  Lee Brandt also touched a bit on the Sketch Flow stuff too earlier last week at the .Net User Group in Kansas City after the event.  He attended MIX 09 so he also knows about the goodies in store.  I know some of you are wondering why even bother with Silverlight why not use Flash.  To me Flash just seems like a lot more work, because I am already invested into .Net as a developer.  It's really just a preference.  I think that in time people will adopt Silverlight if Microsoft continues to add really cool practical features each version.  Anyway I have to go to bed and get up early in the morning.  I will catch you all later.

Hi, Becky. Did you ever do much with Silverlight and SharePoint after this article? I am doing a project now and would like to know what you learned.
