Next week on 13-April at 8:00 AM PST Scott Guthrie will deliver a keynote address for the DevConnections conference being held in Las Vegas, NV.  Scott will provide updates on the progress made in Silverlight 4 and will provide the details of availability of the developer tools, runtime and other news.

Mark your calendars and return to the Silverlight community site to tune into the LIVE event.  After the keynote, Channel 9 will be hosting interviews with Scott and other key members of the Silverlight and Expression teams.  I’ll be hosting one of those interviews as well and look forward to your submitted questions via Twitter to @ch9live.

Hi Tim, will post question here, maybe u can pass it one or two question, or at least give u inspiration, thanks !

how is
silverlight 4,
JQuery/javaScript,
Iron ruby,
interopability is supported ?

can i do jQuery selector to xaml ?

sketchFlow player need balloon to type feedback, why do u expect all of us to use ink ?

we need standard/default on screen keyboard / any input device with silverlight...
so when silverlight know a finger touching it, it give on screen keyboard, or ink pad if a pen is used

doing animation with jQuery is absurd simple, silverlight should be better,
DoubleAnimation API is a joke, do u expect to write FloatAnimation, DecimalAnimation ? what so hard with NumericAnimation :P

we need to have better container, better screen adaptability
zoomable + translateable + touchable container

how is c# 4.0, dlr stuff is supported on silverlight 4.0 ?

what we can NOT do on silverlight phone but can on silverlight 4.0 ?

is silverlight phone == silverlight 4 ?

We hope webBrowser control and notification does not have to be OOBE...

any idea with silverlight apps market ? why only silverlight phone which will have apps market

@Andrew: jQuery is absurd compared to Silverlight. First of all there is no comparison! jQuery doesn't have most of the rich capabilities that Silverlight provides. Animation in Silverlight is more sophisticated and advanced than jQuery. Not to mention that in order to use jQuery you need large complex javascript library files with your websites and you cannot guarantee that will work with all browsers (at this time) either - Silverlight at least runs consistently in all popular supported browsers.

There is no Silverlight phone. It is Silverlight. Same. There maybe minor set of things you may not be able to do on the Phone Platform.

jQuery to XAML? Please, leave the .NET RIA developers alone!

@Tom
Hi, nice feedback, but lets keep the comment to give Tim inspiration for question later
but Tom, take a look to this beautiful code
$('#foo').slideUp(300).delay(800).fadeIn(400);


Hope this inspire u Tim, sorry dont have twitter here....

iphone OS 4 get its preview release, how it compared with silverlight phone ? ahem... multitasking ? this sure give lot pressure to silverlight team at there ;)

How is silverlight phone will be upgraded when there is new release for silverlight (silverlight 5 for example)?

the new xaml parser, interesting, what is the most benefit we get from xaml new parser ?
xaml MUST BE BETTER than DOM, but DOM have class for grouping(class), u know even the nodes are on separated parent, u can still group it

ok jQuery to xaml turn off some developer, i still hope it supported on the javascript API then, Linq to xaml then ?

The last one, promise !!!

How reactive extension will help silverlight ui/calling service programming ?

Hi, Tim
Can you know what conparison between silverlight and flex is?

People, can we keep the comments relevant to the topic?

If you want to know about jQuery / XAML / Silverlight 5 / Windows Phone 7 I am sure there are many many manu forums pertaining to these.

Also bringing in communist China really adds nothing to the discussion but there might be a Google Wave on this but you'd have to be wearing your tinfoil hat to join it no doubt.

I see Hamid has passed the pipe to Greg... sheesh!

@Andrew - I'm having an interesting experience with Rx. SL seems to be missing some of the classes available to the desktop version, and a lot of the examples out there don't work on SL. I hope RTM fares better.

On jQuery, there is a project on codeplex called jLight that might be of interest.

Finally, while I'm not as excited as I was about the release of SL2 & ?SL3, this is actually a much bigger and more important release than those two combined. Fantastic stuff!

Eventually you will come across an ingredient that you cannot find at the local Vons or Albertsons. Or maybe you just want to shop in a place with ingredients you did not know existed. eyelash extensions

Live QA session with Scott was a great experience for me, MSDN is working really hard to promote such a great program. It is useful for all kind of programmers from beginning to expert level. Vallejo Dentist

QA users also have a standing structure under their side view that allows extra users to know how probable their reply is a superior one, based on the user's past recital. Best crossbow
