Next Orange County Azure User Group Meeting Thursday 6/25 on Silverlight and Azure

The Orange County Azure User Group next meets on Thursday, June 25 at 6pm. The topic for this month's meeting is Silverlight and Azure. David Pallmann and Richard Fencel will both be presenting.

In David's presentation, you'll learn how to create rich Silverlight applications that are Azure-hosted and take advantage of cloud services. We'll build an Azure-hosted Silverlight application from the ground up that utilizes web services and cloud storage.

In Richard's presentation, you'll learn about Silverlight dependency properties. Dependency properties are one of the most important and least understood aspects of Silverlight. This lectures describes the advantages of dependency properties and then explains how they work by building a custom dependency property system from scratch. The result is that the student will obtain an intuitive "clay between the fingers" understanding of how dependency properties operate and what they are good for rather than an abstract concept of an underground plumbing system that magically connects Silverlight objects.

As usual, we'll be meeting at QuickStart Intelligence in Irvine.

Please be sure to RSVP if you're coming so we can get the head count right for pizza and beverages.

Please note the start time is 6pm, not 5pm as was erroneously listed in some of the event postings. The meeting will go from 6pm to approximately 8:30 pm.
