Microsoft held their build conference a few days ago (October 30 – November 2) in Redmond. They have put some of the videos of those sessions online. Don’t be put off by the fact it is from Microsoft, there are some interesting things in there like HTML5 & CSS3, high-performance JavaScript and an introduction to TypeScript.

Mike Downey to Join Microsoft Silverlight Team

August 6th, 2009 by Adrian

Mike Downey and microsoft Silverlight

Last week Mike Downey announced that he has taken a new job with the Microsoft Developer & Platform Evangelism team for Silverlight. Those of you that have been in the Flash world for a while will know that Mike was Flash’s senior product manager for a number of years. He has always been a great advocate of Flash, Interactive Media and RIAs. His departure from Adobe at the end of 2008 came as something of a shock and I was sure that we hadn’t seen the last of him. I think Microsoft have made a shrewd move employing the talents of Mike and I wish him well with his new position. The competition from Silverlight can only be a good thing for the Flash Platform and the RIA industry as a whole.
