I went to DevWeek08 this week, and saw some excellent presentations, and some not so….

I particularly liked the talks by Christian Weyer and Richard Blewett on .Net 3.5

However, there wasn’t a huge amount of WPF stuff. I saw a couple of talks by David Wheeler, just to see how it was panning out in the real world. They were very popular, so I wonder if the organisers might have put on more WPF talks. One of the talks was on multi-threading in WPF, and Dave was a very entertaining talker although the content wasn’t that deep due to time constraints.

Silverlight was overshadowing WPF, as I suspect it will in the general world of IT 🙂
The talks on Silverlight by Jeff Prosise were also excellent, and his enthusiasm for the subject matter was clear.
It has made me realise two things that I didn’t know:

1. A beta of Silverlight was released last week (for MIX08 in USA I believe), and actually has some decent stuff in it. And it works 🙂
2. It really is cool :-), so I think I might do some posts on the experienc
