Silverlight might be dead…

1 Mar

For the last year (or so) it has been official that Silverlight have reached a point of maturity. From Microsoft’s point of view it means that it will not be updated as often as we have seen previously. Many see this as if the technology is dead.

In some sense I agree – a technology that won’t be upgraded is as good as dead.

Only issue here is that Silverlight is still an amazing technology and one of the best technologies for building true Line-of-Business applications for the browser and the desktop. My company still builds several Silverlight based applications – there are no real alternatives.

With that in mind Windows Developers in Denmark are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Packt Publishing and are organizing a give away especially for you. All you need to do is just comment below this post and win a free copy of “Instant Silverlight 5 Animation” – three lucky winners stand a chance to win an e-copy. Head on over to this page and look through the product description of these books and drop a line via the comments below to let us know what interests you the most about these books. It’s that simple.

The contest is only for members of Windows Developers in Denmark and will close on 6. March 2013 . Winners will be contacted by email, so be sure to use your real email address when you comment!
