Silverlight 3 at TRINUG Web Apps Sig

image

Tonight the gang at the TRINUG Web
Apps SIG (Special Interest Group) decided to take a break from their monthly MVC and
JQuery fun to take a look at some of the new features of Silverlight 3.
The screenshot above and link below is the completed code sample that I was walking
through to show some Silverlight basics and look at a few of the new features.

The sample includes Perspective 3d capabilities, element to element bindings, and
Pixel Shader Effects.
