Slide Deck from SharePoint Saturday Indianapolis 2010

Posted by Steve Pietrek on February 1, 2010

Thank you to everyone who attended my “Silverlight 3 in SharePoint 2007” presentation at SharePoint Saturday Indianapolis on 1/31/2010. The deck and source code are available. I received many great questions and I will be working on updating my deck to incorporate the answers.

Thinking about starting a series of blog posts on my Silverlight in SharePoint experiences. Heck, have 3 blog posts based on my experiences today only. Any interest?
