Wondering what's next in Silverlight? Want to become a Silverlight developer? Want to become a better Silverlight developer? Then you should watch the Silverlight Firestarter on Dec 2nd.

Now there are three ways you can watch this event:

  • In person, in Redmond. Register.
  • Online, wherever you like. Register.
  • Online, with the company of fellow programmers to discuss what you're seeing. I think this is better than online by yourself, so I'm excited that the East of Toronto .NET Users Group is hosting a local Firestarter. Register.

What are they covering? Just about everything:

  • The future of Silverlight
  • Data Binding Strategies with Silverlight and WP7
  • Building Compelling Apps with WCF using REST and LINQ
  • Building Feature Rich Business Apps Today with RIA Services
  • MVVM: Why and How? Tips and Patterns using MVVM and Service Patterns with Silverlight and WP7
  • Tips and Tricks for a Great Installation Experience
  • Tune Your Application: Profiling and Performance Tips 
  • Performance Tips for Silverlight Windows Phone 7

It's running 11:30am - 7:30 pm in Ajax on Thursday Dec 2nd, so you'll need to arrange time off work. Considering all you'll learn about Silverlight, it's well worth the time. Be there!
