May 23th: Multi – Mania

Multi – mania ( 2M08 ) is the biggest free multimedia event in Belgium, and it is all happening in my hometown Kortrijk.  This year 2M08 also pays attention to Silverlight 2.0 with two sessions and one lab:

  • Building RIAs with Silverlight 2 by Gill Cleeren starts at 2pm
  • Overview of Silverlight 2 for designers by Katrien De Graeve starts at 3pm
  • Together with Dieter De Preester, I present the lab on how to get started with Silverlight 2.0.  This lab starts at 11:30am.

All further info can be found on  Places – especially for the lab – are limited, so be sure you subscribe on time.

Hope to meet you there!!!



One of the coolest features in Silverlight 2.0 is deepzoom.  I guess most of you have already seen the deepzoom demo with the hardrock café memorabilia:

You can download the Deepzoom composer here, create you own compilation and export it to a *.bin file.  A complete demo on how you can control this *.bin file from c# can be found on the blog of Dan Waters.
The tutorial includes a video and the complete source code.

Enjoy it!!
