Silverlight 2.0 RTM!

This is a little far from the usual BI topics, but I think it’s pretty exciting regardless. Microsoft Silverlight 2.0 has[1] been released. You can download the bits and the development tools on the official Silverlight web site. There is also a great blog post from Scott Guthrie that describes the 2.0 platform and lots of resources that are available to Silverlight developers.

I don’t know about you, but as a developer who has to play in the UI tier occasionally, this is the release I’ve been waiting for. Check it out!

[1] Finally! I can’t remember the last time there was a product that I’d been hearing about and seeing so much of for so long before it was released.

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
