This MIX 07 conference has got something exciting in form of Siverlight.
Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications (RIAs) for the Web. The Silverlight 1.0 Beta has a go-live license that implies it can be used for commercial purposes.
What has it got for you?
· Cross platform .net framework through Silverlight (full Visual Studio experience)
· Perf when using C# instead of js to create rich internet apps is 300-1000 times faster
· Silverlight Visual Studio add-in enables debugging – even remotely debug an app running on a Mac (Matt saw it live!)
