I would like to Thank every single one of you who attended our monthly meeting held on June 23rd, 2009 at Microsoft Innovation Center, Karachi. As we announced couple of weeks ago about June Meeting on Silverlight that we invited Adnan Amin (MCPD and MCT) as speaker. On behalf of Emerging .NET Devs, I would like to thank Adnan for taking out some time to share your knowledge on Silverlight. Hopefully we will continue some sessions on Silverlight. Following was the overall agenda of the meeting:
Introduction to Silverlight by Adnan Amin
Current application development practice in the Industry
New development model, “The XAML Way”
Embedding Sivlerlight apps into current applications
Silverlight Demo by Adnan Amin
A noticeable thing this time was that there were number of students in the audience and I got a positive feedback from them. Almost everyone of them is willing to attend the next session.
Adnan highlighted some of the issues in the current development practices and how Silverlight ease those issues by bringing Designers and Developers together on single platform.
The history of Silverlight and its architecture was also discussed in the session and audience showed their interest through Q&A.
The speaker also shared his experiences regarding web application development with and without Silverlight and how they make their customer satisfied using Silverlight.
Another main point on the agenda was to discuss the importance of User Groups and the purpose of User Group Meetings. Following were the main points that were discussed as Purpose of UG Meetings:
- Job Opportunities
- Meet Experts
- Solution to Problems
The audience raised number of questions related to advantages of UG meetings and some of them was answered by audience as well 🙂
Finally, I would like to thank people at Microsoft Innovation Center specially Haseeb and others for arranging necessary accommodation and equipment for carrying out the event smoothly.
