Microsoft Silverlight and Moments of Honor to David Silverlight
The next generation cross-browser cross-platform media for delivering rich applications across the web, which has been hitherto codenamed WPF has been rechristened and largely revamped as Microsoft Silverlight.
I was casually browsing through David Silverlight's weblog hosted from Community-Credit.com, which is an inspiring website encouraging community participation amongst developers. You can hear from his own blog the process by which Microsoft Silverlight got renamed after him.
I have a unique pride to have personally met him during my trip to Microsoft MVP Summit held at Seattle during March 11 and March 16. He was looking out for me since Tuesday however I had great opportunity to meet him right at Redmond campus (Mecca of true .NET developers) on Wednesday and again on Thursday morning a mini prize distribution ceremony held exclusively for me at Hotel Renaissance. Along with me, Hima (another ASP.NET MVP) shares the pride of meeting him at Seattle and here is her say.
