Silverlight Firestarter Videos

A few months back Microsoft did a firestarter event in Redmond on Silverlight.

For the vast majority of the world who didn't go to this event (including me), they recorded it, and stuck the videos online. You can download the videos from the mix site

Not only are the videos good, but the website itself is a nice use of Silverlight. There is some great introductory material on the videos (and is a nice thing to watch on your ipod/zune as some gentle relaxation).

If you are looking for a good introduction to Silverlight, this is one of the best places to start.

One of the seriously cool things about these videos are the actual speakers. You have some of the top microsoft bods in Silverlight and WPF speaking at this event (Jesse Liberty, Laurence Moroney, Adam Kinney, Adam Nathan, Ernie Booth), this means you really do get some useful insights into where everything is going.

So even if you are pretty experienced with Silverlight it is worth watching these videos.
