Slides and samples from Silverlight Patterns and Frameworks talk

8 Feb

Yesterday Martin Jespen and I did a talk about Silverlight patterns and framework at the monthly Silverlight Usergroup meeting in Denmark.

I the first part of the talk, Martin showed the differences between MEF and Unity and wrapped up by showing some of the possibilities in PRISM. You can download the samples here. You can download the documentation for PRISM here.

In the second part of the talk, I showed how to expose an OData feed using a WCF DataService and access the data from a Silverlight application. To follow up I showed how to use a WCF RIA Service and how to expose the data as an OData feed. You can down the samples here. You can find a guide to OData and Silverlight here.

Silverlight kurser og workshops

31 Jan

Jeg har tidligere skrevet om en række Silverlight workshops som jeg afholder I løbet af de kommende 4 måneder. Alle workshops foregår onsdag aften på ITU fra kl. 18:00-21:00.

Nu ligger der også 2 kurser på tegnebrættet – et “Introduktion til Silverlight 4”-kursus og et “Avanceret Silverlight 4”-kursus. Begge kurser ligger i starten af april.

For at gøre det hele en smule mere overskueligt har jeg opdateret silverlightkursus.dk så den fremover viser en oversigt over alle workshops, kurser og foredrag som Bluefragments står for.

Derudover afholder den danske Silverlight brugergruppe (SLDEV) en række spændende events som kan ses på http://sldev.eventbrite.com/.

Happy coding!

WOW! that was fun

20 Jan

Tonight I participated in the first geeknight hosted by the Danish Silverlight usergroup (SLDEV). It was a really great experience and I actually think that it was great fun. Only six developers participated but it was a relaxed atmosphere and we shared a lot of experiences.

The only agenda was that it was all about Silverlight. What surprised me was that only one (1!) choose to work on a Silverlight (OOB) application. The rest (including myself) was working on a Silverlight WP7 application. I actually managed to complete my Badevand application that show meteological data for beaches in Copenhagen, Denmark. The data is stored in a SQL Azure database and retrieved using an OData feed.

It might sound really geeky (and it is!) but I’m looking forward to the next geeknight in February (http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1178036539).

Silverlight geeknights

17 Jan

I løbet af de kommende måneder arrangerer den danske Silverlight brugergruppe (SLDEV) en række geeknights. En geeknight er kort fortalt en aften, hvor vi mødes med vores laptops og så er der Silverlight fri kodning :) Der er ingen agenda og ingen talere, men der vil være en masse dygtige Silverlight udviklere, som kan hjælpe og svare på spørgsmål. Der er intet krav om hvad der skal kodes – Silverlight til browseren, ude af browseren, til WP7 – valget er dit!

Det lyder meget nørdet – og det er det også! men det bliver brænd hyggeligt!

Onsdag den 19. januar 2010 kl. 18:00 – 24:00
Onsdag den 23. februar 2010 kl. 18:00 – 24:00
Onsdag den 23. marts 2010 kl. 18:00 – 24:00

(vi har skaffet en sponsor til lidt mad og drikke)

Du kan altid se kommende events for en række danske brugergrupper (herunder SLDEV) med Event Calendar til WP7. App’en er gratis og kan hentes på MarketPlace: http://social.zune.net/redirect?type=phoneApp&id=8d079231-99f8-df11-9264-00237de2db9e.

Flødeboller til alle – opfølgning

10 Jan

Tilbage i december (http://xamlgeek.net/2010/12/15/fldeboller-til-alle/) lovede jeg flødeboller til alle medlemmer af CNUG, SLDEV og WPDEV hvis det samlede medlemstal nåede op på minimum 900 den 31. december 2010.

Jeg må blankt indrømme at jeg var lidt nervøs den 30. december da medlemstallet stod på 899 – og den 31. december om eftermiddagen kom så anmodningen fra medlem nummer 900. BANG! Så er det sgu bare ud og købe flødeboller, Thomas Martinsen! 

I kan derfor godt forvente at der vil være flødeboller I forbindelse med de kommende CNUG, SLDEV og WPDEV events :)

Flødeboller til alle

15 Dec

Spørger du mig, så går det går rigtig fint for de danske IT brugergrupper. Jeg sidder selv som kernemedlem (en af dem der arrangerer alle møderne) i 3 brugergrupper:

- CNUG (Copenhagen .NET Usergroup)
- SLDEV (Silverlight developers in DK)
- WPDEV (Windows Phone developers in DK)

SLDEV og WPDEV er et par forholdsvis nye brugergrupper, men har allerede fået stor tilslutning og vi har fået afholdt nogle virkelig spændende arrangementer. CNUG har kørt i nogle år og har senest fået 3 nye kernemedlemmer og vi har planlagt en masse emner til foråret 2011 – de bliver offentliggjort meget snart sammen med vores nye hjemmeside.

Samlet set har de 3 brugergrupper 878 medlemmer!!

Den naturlige tilgang af medlemmer betyder, at vi formodentlig runder 890 medlemmer inden årets udgang. Jeg syntes dog, at det kunne være super fedt hvis vi kom over 900 medlemmer inden årets udgang. Derfor vil jeg gerne give flødeboller til alle(!) medlemmer hvis de 3 brugergruppe har mere end 900 medlemmer den 31. december 2010.

Why? Why not!

Silverlight and Windows Phone usergroups

30 Sep

Over the summer we have started two new usergroups in Denmark: A Silverlight usergroup (SLDEV) and a Windows Phone usergroup (WPDEV). Both usergroups have some key members that are very passionate about the technologies. By the time of writing each usergroup got more than 100 members – that is really cool!

Next week we have our first official event in the Silverlight usergroup. TV 2 Denmark (large Danish broadcasting company) talks about why they have chosen Silverlight and we take a technical walkthrough of their Silverlight based video player. http://www.eventbrite.com/event/865792609

Later on next week Nikhil Kothari visits Copenhagen (YEAH!!!). The Silverlight usergroup have arranged a 2 hour talk by Nikhil about WCF RIA Services. http://www.eventbrite.com/event/865854795

In the Windows Phone usergroup we have planned to do a code camp tour around Denmark during October. You can see the events at Eventbrite: http://wpdev.eventbrite.com.
