MIX 11: SilverLight 5 Beta?


As every good web developer and web designer know today is the day!

Today is the first day of MIX 11

As part of MIX, SilverLight 5 beta will be release. I encourage you to watch the keynote live at http://live.visitmix.com/ starting April 12th at 9AM PDT (4PM GMT).

Silverlight 5?  but isn’t Microsoft following everybody with HTML5 ? If you are asking yourself the same question, read this post from April 4th : http://team.silverlight.net/announcement/standards-based-web-plug-ins-and-silverlight/

After reading this I am still not 100% convinced that Microsoft did not want to say goodbye to SilverLight last Fall in favor of HTML 5.

Anyway I find that both should stay! Both have a reason to stay. I just hope that Microsoft will leverage the “seperation of concerns” (designer and developer) that they have acheived in Silverlight with HTML5

For example, as a Microsoft Partner, I see very little incentive from Microsoft to build and deploy SilverLight applications on the other hand they would like me to move everything personal and professional to the cloud!

Have a good MIX11 day!
