    Silverlight sure has come a long way since the days of “WPF/E.” With its most recent release, Silverlight 2 Beta 2, it has truly proven itself to be one of the best toolsets for Rich Internet Applications, and has effectively achieved its original goal of being an Internet version of WPF. The power and possibilities behind Silverlight are endless. However, with the continuous stream of alpha and beta releases, there are many breaking changes that appear. Newcomers to Silverlight and developers upgrading to the newest versions may have trouble learning all the ropes of the new 2 Beta 2 version.

    Come with me on my journey of discovery of the new SilverLight technology.

    I’ll be learning by doing. I’ll create a full blown SilverLight application from ground up and share every step of the journey with you.

    Everything i learn i will post right here in my blog and i’ll file it under the category “Project SilverLight 1.1″

    Another very polished Silverlight application was launched recently.  It aggregates new feeds and music videos in a very slick user experience.  For instance, if you click the login button, the background is dimmed and the media is paused as the login UI animates to the forground.  This is a great example of the type of media enriched web applications we had in mind when we created the platform.  Click the image to run the app, note the text of app is in Portuguese.

     Lots of buzz today about's switch to Silverlight for their baseball video highlights.  Kurt Brockett of IdentityMine points to some other bloggers, including Mike Harsh.

    The guy who does this for MLB, Kevin Barnett, actually blogged about it last week.  They've been working on this since MIX07, and demonstrated the full vision in the keynote.  Kevin has some interesting comments about what it was like working with the early bits.

    It's a beta version, but it's nice to see a big site like this taking a dependency on Silverlight before it's officially released.
