“The Future of Silverlight” keynote by ScottGu starts off the 12/2/10 FireStarter event

14 November 2010

As a developer on the Silverlight team, I get the joy of seeing the many code review and checkin e-mails that our dev team is doing. It’s exciting, and sometimes I do wish I could share that sort of thing with the world.

We’ve been hosting Silverlight FireStarter events for some time, but in light of recent confusion and happenings in the world of the Silverlight, the next one on 12/2/10 is just that much more important: the keynote by Scott Guthrie will be on “Future of Silverlight”.

Here’s the marketing graphic for the event, please tune in!
