In the day I got my MVP for the 6th time in a row (the fifth under the Silverlight expertise), I would like to make it official, a change that someone can have miss. If you watch at the page header of this site, the title is now "XAML Playground", just to be witness of a biggest change that has happened in the previous months.
Many of you are aware that, after the technology shift predicted by Bob Muglia during October 2010, lot of things have changed in the horizon of the technology from which this site has born. Silverlight today is not only Silverlight but a set of technologies now have their roots starting from its seed. We have Silverlight on the Windows Phone, we have Silverlight on the Embedded systems and, mostly important we have Silverlight on Windows 8 under the name of XAML.
And it is exactly reflecting the name change that happened in Windows 8, that I decided to slightly change the title from "Silverlight" to "XAML".
The reason of this change is probably clear. I strongly believe that the power of Silverlight is now part of something much more bigger and it has a bright future. All these technologies have a sole common denominator that is XAML.
So, as it happened since the start of this year, expect in the future, a number of posts on Silverlight in the various flavour, for the Web, for Windows Phone, for Metro UI and probably also for Windows (ops... WPF).
From now please be aware you can use three domains to reach this site:
So definitely, it is all about XAML
