I'm here at Ajax World in Santa Clara and interest in Silverlight is very high. Folks want to know what it is, how it works, how it fits in with Ajax, and how they can get started with it.
One thing that is very clear from talking with folks here is that I need to do a series of videos about how Microsoft AJAX and Silverlight complement each other; the realtionship between the two is very unclear for a lot of developers. It will be a great deal of fun working on those.
Joe Stagner gave a great Keynote about AJAX and how the Microsoft AJAX implementation goes beyond eye candy, and it was the perfect setup for talking both about how AJAX and Silverlight can enhance one another and about how Silverlight is also not just eye candy.
Fertile ground for follow up, I can't wait to get back home and start writing new tutorials, white papers and recording new videos.
