New year, new resolutions

A long time has passed since my last post – but anyway, the time before christmas is always very busy @ Microsoft. Right now, we are reviewing the first half of the year and looking at the results as well as planning the second half. Designer business looks actually pretty good, we are seeing quite some traction and a lot of interest in Silverlight and Expression. Still, there are lots of areas of improvement, chiefly among them the need for additional training resources. Which brings me to the topic of today’s post: if you are looking for a quick way to ramp up on Silverlight, check out the Silverlight Firestarter at

The Silverlight 1.0 Fire Starter is a one-day event providing developers and designers information on the concept behind Silverlight as a technology, what tools are useful in development and the knowledge in order to start building their own applications. The eight sessions are available to watch here and can be downloaded in video and audio-only formats.

So, if you have a bit of free time, take a look.
