SilverlightShow Newsletter - Issue #2 (2010 April)

We would like to share with SilverlightShow community that CompletIT - the company behind SilverlightShow - has become Microsoft Featured Silverlight Partner for March 2010. We are happy to receive this recognition as a result from our Silverlight experience, and our continuous efforts to facilitate the adoption of Silverlight for line-of-business applications.

Two years ago we founded SilverlightShow to create a community where sharing of experience is welcome, appreciated and encouraged. We did our best to turn SilverlightShow into a portal offering only hot, high-quality content.

We would like to thank all of you for your contribution to making SilverlightShow one of the most popular portals for Silverlight resources. Without your active participation in the discussions, article and news authoring, SilverlightShow and CompletIT wouldn't have achieved their recognition and popularity. We will keep investing our efforts in making SilverlightShow portal better, even more content-rich, and of course - more Silverlight. Look forward to the portal's new Silverlight look!

MIX10 in Las Vegas has just ended. The reflections on the event and discussions on news announced there, however, will keep being a hot topic over the next few months.
