Join me for some exciting sessions at Devlink 2010

Pete Brown - 08 April 2010

I'm excited to announce that I'll be presenting four sessions at Devlink 2010 in August 2010. The sessions are listed below. Hope to see you there!

Best of Both Worlds: Sharing code and UI between Silverlight and WPF

Pete Brown
8/6/2010 1:00:00 PM

"Let's face it, the two technologies just aren't yet 100% compatible. If you're an ISV or just someone interested in providing both the best desktop and best web experiences, dual-targeting WPF and Silverlight can be a real challenge. Learn some tips and techniques for maximizing reuse and minimizing compatibility issues between Silverlight, WPF and even Silverlight for Windows Phone 7."

Beyond Hello World: Windows Phone 7 Silverlight Development Deep-Dive

"By now you've seen a hundred ""Hello World"" Windows Phone applications. It's time to really push the envelope and see what it takes to build real applications on Windows Phone 7 Series. See what you can use from your Silverlight development toolbox, as well as what you'll need to unlearn. We'll dive into the platform-specific APIs, what works well, and what doesn't. Good, Bad and Ugly, it'll all come out here."

Silverlight Adores my C64: How I wrote an 8-bit emulator in Silverlight

"The computer that got me into programming was the Commodore 64. It was an amazing little 8-bit breadbox with great graphics and a built-in synthesizer. The single most popular computer in the world, it has yet to be outsold by any other model. In this session, we'll wax poetic about our favorite brown keyboard, then dive right into some exciting Silverlight code, including generating realtime video and sound using MediaStreamSource, emulating a CPU, dealing with threading and more. You'll learn what had to happen to translate decades old C++ code into a modern pointerless safe language, what worked, and what was challenging."

10 Things Every Silverlight and WPF Developer Must Know

"If you're a code-on-the-client guy, Silverlight and WPF are the technologies to know. However, they can be really hard to get into. After all, xaml, dependency properties, the binding system - these are all new to most developers. This session is a crash course on developing in Xaml-based technologies, and will give you everything you need to know to get started, the knowledge you'll need to build on, and where to go once you move beyond Hello World. Interested in Silverlight or WPF but haven't been able to get past the initial barriers? This session is for you."
