Well, Microsoft never disappoints on the second day of the keynote. I was wondering why breakfasts had been suppressed and the traditional Universal Studios party taken away. This morning’s keynote gave the answer. All PDC attendees are receiving a brand new laptop, custom configured for developers. NICE!!!!
Now on to my favorite talk. Scott Guthrie spoke and showed Silverlight 4. I no longer have an excuse to delay getting up to speed on Silverlight. As far as business applications are concerned, there is a concerted effort to address typical concerns of business applications in Silverlight 4. It is now available as a beta, and was announced as planned on being released first half of 2010. Silverlight 4, here I come!
