Experiences and Experiments in Programming

 Wednesday, March 05, 2008

The day started off pretty good yesterday.  Got to airport on time, got on plane, then got squashed into my tiny seat for 4-5 hours of immobile flight!

Last night I caught up with some guys that I knew and met some that I didn't.  Hung out for a while with Doug Turnure, Shawn Wildermuth, Joe Healy.  I met Scott Hanselman, Tim Sneath and a slew of other folks.

We initially got together at an O'Reilly event.  They were introducing a new concept in book publishing using a Silverlight 2.0 book.  It is called "Up To Date".  It is a book that is up to date with the initial release of Silverlight, but will be updated as releases are put out.  The book itself is unique binder construct that allows new pages to be put into the book ( in a similar fashion to a 3-ring binder ).  Updates to the book will be released both as PDF downloads and as a purchasable update.  Once you register the book, you can download the PDF updates, hole punch the pages, and put it in the book.  It is definitely an interesting concept!

Many of you may know that I have been recording "How Do I" videos for Microsoft Expression products for a while.  Recently a new Web site has been created by Microsoft focusing on the Expression Community.

There are sections for blogs, news and events.  There is a section for videos laid out more similarly to WindowsClient.net.  There is a gallery of work that not only demonstrates work done with the Expression suite of products, but also some creative inspiration sites!  And needless to say, there is a forum section for questions and answers.

If you do any work with the Expression products or are interested in getting started, be sure to check it out!  You can find the new site at http://expression.microsoft.com.
