Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I'll give it a shot anyways...
This has been on my mind since attending Firestarter early last month: what is the temperature of the room with using Silverlight/WPF for application development? The messaging seems very confusing coming out of Microsoft, starting with the Silverlight
"Strategy Adjustment" late last year.
I just saw Mr. Eisenberg's latest blog post to
vote for his Mix talk . I am conflicted by this. First off, I sincerely hope he lands because his talk at last year's Mix was the highlight of the conference for me. However, his subject is a bit disheartening to me because it deals
science chain and should die a beautiful quick death.
Seeing Mr. Eisenberg's decision to talk about JS/HTML, along with the confusing messaging from the Empire sure does make me mighty nervous.
I have invested years into Silverlight and WPF. But now, with signs like this, it makes me wonder if I made the wrong turn somewhere.
I did attend and listen to ScottGu's
LIDNUG session yesterday. I asked my question about the future of Silverlight, and he made it clear in no uncertain terms that Silverlight is the platform of choice for Windows Phone 7, and that the Silverlight team is hard at work with the next version.
ever again; it is beneath me. :P
Anyways, maybe I'm over-reacting. WPF/Silverlight, along with the brilliant minds that brought us Caliburn(.Micro) make it the superior application development platform of choice. I'd hate to see it become the BetaMax of application development.
