Portland Silverlight User Group Kickoff

Fiserv Cafe
3400 NW John Olsen Place
Hillsboro, OR 97124, US (map)



This is the first meeting of the Portland Silverlight User Group - our keynote speaker will be Vertigo (www.vertigo.com) CEO Scott Stanfield. At its core, Vertigo is a group of developers and designers working closely together to create amazing user experiences.

Scott will discuss how Vertigo uses Silverlight, Blend, SketchFlow and a handful of development techniques (“Blendability”, MVVM and View State Manager) to enable our design and development teams to move quickly and build great apps like the Winter Olympics (http://www.vertigo.com/Olympics.aspx), Sunday Night Football (http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/26393211/), and Hard Rock International (http://www.vertigo.com/hardrock.aspx).

If you’re an interaction designer, you’ll see what’s possible with Silverlight. If you’re a developer, you’ll learn better techniques to enable the designers to dial-in the fidelity they want. Or if you're just plain curious, please join us!
