Dan Wahlin - Resist The Drama!
Dan Wahlin talks about the new realities of being a Silverlight developer in a Metro World. Dan talks Silverlight and how deeply connected it is in the Microsoft stack, including SQL Server, Sharepoint, etc. But even more importantly, Dan points out that Silverlight developers have the closest skillset to a WinRT developer with a combination of XAML and C#. The conversation wraps up with a discussion of the new features in Silverlight 5. Silverlight is far from dead!
