Silverlight Visualization Application: NFL Free Agency Movement

Pete Brown - 14 May 2008

My colleague at AIS, Tad VanFleet, just created a cool Silverlight 2 application for tracking NFL Free Agent movement.


Tad is on our BI/Data Visualization team, and has shown a strong interest in, and skill with, Silverlight 2. One of the earliest demos he showed me was a cool geomapped data visualization for one of our clients. Since Silverlight builds on existing skillsets in .NET and C#, it is very approachable to anyone with a .NET background, even if they have never used WPF or any other RIA platform.

You can find Tad's blog post on the NFL Free Agency Movement application here.

    Ryan, you're not the only one that's interestedI'm haivng to endure working with stupid DynamicsCRM the UI is so clunky (I could say worse). I'm haivng two problems: finding good integration hooks to get in there without too much pain and without future updates breaking the (unorthorised) mods getting the boss to realise that the standard UI is inadequate, and that about a third of the app can really be done better and getting buy in ( Hrmph! it don't look broke to me. It don't need no fixin'! )either way, it's lipstick on a pig,,,lets hope Mossy Barnes doesn't see this thread he might get ideas

    The browser is the fuutre of development platforms and Apple want in on the action So you vote for the RIA camp?Are they not using WebKit??? Then what?Well, I suppose they are using WebKit. My point is, this is not just a port of the WebKit core, like Apollo or Swift are. This is a port of Safari, the whole browser, powered by WebKit.

    Dear Ripplemaker Carrie:How sweet you are to leave such a positive comment!It is this kind of feedback that keeps me building this blogsphere.You are so right that this is a platform to kick off Ripplemaker movement in Taiwan.When we have more people who want to become a Ripplemaker, we will start the ripple effect and change the world by simply being an active Ripplemaker.Thank you for making my day.Ping

    Thanks for your write-up. I also believe that laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular currently, and now are usually the only form of computer employed in a household. This is due to the fact that at the same time they are becoming more and more economical, their working power keeps growing to the point where these are as strong as desktop computers coming from just a few years back.

    Take 2. Please fix your website's Unicode suprpot.If find it curious that you yell No IE6! while in IE6 the site is readable, while in Safari I don't get yelled at but I have to scroll back and forth using the horizontal scrollbar to read posts. Lesson learned: if you suck at CSS, don't use it.
