Weather forecast tutorial: Part1

In this tutorial, I will create a small weather forecast application that consumes two webservices.  the first service offers an overview of cities in the USA and the second returns the weather forecast for that city.

The first part of this tutorial shows how you can consume serveral services in Silverlight 2.0.  In the second part, I will show how you can use styles and templates to create an attractive user interface.  The second part should be available by the end of this week.

Happy Pi day !!!!

Today is March 14 ( 3/14 ), a day that is more or less equal to pi.
To “celebrate” this day, some colleagues and I developed a small silverlight 1.0 game called Pi op H ( referring to PIH the school where I’m working ).

The game is pretty easy, there are 3 orange circles on the left and three green circles on the rigt, with the pi sign in the middle.  You can move the circles in the H and must put all the orange circles to the right and all the green ones to the left, with the pi sign still in the middle.

The contest runs till the first of may.  After the contest, I will post the complete source code for the game.
