Besug event: Silverlight 3.0 workshop

The beta of Silverlight 3.0 was unveiled at Mix in March this year and has a lot of new interesting features.  BESUG organizes a workshop to introduce you to these features.  The workshop will take place at the Boulevart buildings in Schelle at the 10th of September and endures two hours (from 19h till 21h).

During this workshop we will build a small Silverlight application, showing some of the new concepts like out of browser, animation easing, deeplinking, pixel effects, importing Photoshop files and perspective 3D.

You need to bring your own laptop with the following installed:
