Silverlight 4

I was happy to see that Mike Taulty was giving two talks about Silverlight .  He has a great way of imparting information in a relaxed and unassuming way – its a nice skill to have especially when coupled with a  strong understanding of the subject matter.  I’m looking forward to his talk covering Windows Phone 7 this coming Friday…

UI Interaction Design

Michael Koster evangelized on the benefits to a Developer in using Blend alongside Visual Studio – he did a great job of showing all the time saving features that are a part of Blend itself –  I still have much to learn in this area but am learning fast , now using Blend on a daily basis

ASP.Net 4 / JQuery

Like his predecessors Mike Ormond covered a lot of ground in a short space of time.  He has a no nonsense style and appeared to have prepared well ( I especially enjoyed the example app that usefully covered much of the  functionality of JQuery  and am looking forward to some revision using it).
