Be sure to attend my session at 9:00 on Tuesday where I'll be talking about how we used the Silverlight 1.1 Alpha to put one of the first 1.1 applications into production back in July.

On 7/7/7 for the LiveEarth event, we went live with one of the very first Silverlight 1.1 alpha applications: the Conservation International Carbon Calculator. Through integration with Silverlight 1.1, Virtual Earth, and MOSS 2007, the application walks the user through calculating their own personal or family carbon emissions, and teaches them about the ways they can offset those emissions. In this session, we'll take a developer-focused look at what it took to build this application, what the alpha did well, what challenges we faced, and what we might keep the same or change if we started from scratch today.
