Silverlight for Web Hosting

Earlier this month, I posted about Microsoft Silverlight, comparing the recent release from the software giant to Apple’s iPhone. While the adoption of Microsoft’s new web platform may not rival that of the iPhone, which recently reached the 1 million units sold milestone, websites, seminars, and tutorials will slowly become available. Michael Sherotter, an evangelist for Microsoft’s Communications Sector, […] tasked with explaining Microsoft’s latest technologies, announced a Webcast earlier this month on Silverlight for Web Hosting.

Silverlight, Microsoft’s new cross-platform web browser technology for media playback and rich Internet applications (RIAs) represents a great opportunity for Web Hosting Companies to differentiate themselves and provider new services to their customers.

  • What: Microsoft Silverlight For Web Hosting Companies
  • When: Friday, September 28th, 2007, 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Time
  • Where: Microsoft LiveMeeting over the Internet
  • Why: Demand is growing for media hosting & streaming and rich interactive applications on the Internet and web hosting companies need to understand the implications for them.

The session will be recorded, and should be a great way to get acquainted with Silverlight.
