Matt on the Floor at SXSW* Learning about Silverlight 2 and O’Reilly

During this interview I got to speak with Laurel Ackerman from O'Reilly Media about a new book they have on shelves: Essential Silverlight 2 Up-to-Date.  What is amazing is that we just announced Silverlight 2 on March 3rd and Laurel was holding the book on the 10th.  Pretty awesome! 

More importantly the book was written in a new concept they have at O'Reilly called Up-to-Date.   The Up-to-Date series is a new program from O’Reilly designed to keep books current even as the technologies they describe evolve.  More importantly the program will allow you to get updates directly from O'Reilly!   So a book that changes as the technology evolves!

Check out the interview below and let me know what you think!

Silverlight 2 Up-to-Date Interview with Laurel Ackerman


*You be asking what SXSW stands for?  It stands for South by Southwest, a great music festival.  Wait a second I know what your thinking, what is Microsoft doing there?  Microsoft Silverlight was a major sponsor for SXSW Interactive which is celebrates the best minds and the brightest personalities of emerging technology.  While I was there I had my camera along with me and decided to talk with some folks!
