Back home

I am back home after 2 weeks spent in a road trip around Sicily, Italy. We had a great time, and I will document the trip gradually in the next few days on my PhotoAlbum. It was really nice to let go for a moment, and I barely did anything work related (except reading 4 chapters of Adam Nathan’s WPF book and catching up with blogs during the last hotel stay of the trip). I found no wireless connection during the trip (except once in Taormina and then in Palermo) but I didn’t look for them either. I really needed a break and it was good to think of nothing but the sun, the sea, the antique monuments, the excellent food, and having no harder decision to make than choosing if I wanted red or white wine with my dinner (my wife doesn’t drink so I enjoyed the ‘vino della casa’ alone).

First thing I noticed after installing Silverlight 1.0 RC1 is that the video on my PhotoAlbum didn’t work anymore. There is an update for Expression Media Encoder which produces new JavaScript files for the video player, and which breaks the customizations I made.

You can now watch videos on my PhotoAlbum using Silverlight!! Currently, two pages have video: Pune, India and Calcutta Rescue’s projects in Kolkata. To start the video, locate the thumbnails marked with a “movie” label, and click them.

In my last post, I mentioned a problem occuring with Silverlight Streaming if the application’s name starts with a number.

I lost some time today with that error, so be careful what you name your Silverlight Streaming application!

Ending the WPF training in Pune

The WPF training in Pune, India went great. We finished on time, I spent the last afternoon showing various resources and demonstrating how to create a basic Silverlight application, as well as make Silverlight videos. This is not strictly speaking in the scope of the training, but with the WPF background acquired during these 3 days, moving on to Silverlight is really easy, and really motivating too.

Things I want to remember
  • The wall of human faces waiting outside of the Mumbai airport, most with names on signs; endless faces waiting patiently.
