Silverlight –The Future Starts Now

Silverlight Firestarter: The Future of Silverlight Starts Now

There was quite a bit of concern about announcements and lack of announcements and press reports during PDC.   I wrote a short posting on the issue, but nothing says commitment and long, robust and healthy life, like a Scott Guthrie keynote marked by “what’s coming next for Silverlight”

    I enjoyed your talk today and followed your example closely. One thing I do not ever see is an example of implementing INPC from end-to-end with WCF. If my entity is a data contract returned from WCF, how am I supposed to implement that? Do I need to write a wrapper class for the entity?

    I also do not understand why I would want to update my database when I leave the focus of a textbox? What if I am updating an entity with many properties. Every time I leave a field I would be updating the database. That is multiple update queries instead of just one at the end when an “Update” button is pushed.

    How can we stop the twitter feed here. It is causing the presentation vedio stream to buffer.
