For all of you attending tomorrow's CMAP code camp, here's a sneak peek at what I'll be building in my 10:30 Silverlight 2 and Microsoft Expression session. The session is targeted towards developers, but anyone with an interest in Silverlight or Expression is welcome and encouraged to attend

The application has a server piece (the windows forms app) and, in this instance, two Silverlight clients in a chat, actually talking to each other over sockets.

Expression Design

  • Building the chat bubble

Expression Blend

  • Designing the overall UI
  • Creating interesting and easy animations to make the bubbles pop up and fade away

Visual Studio 2008

  • Wiring it all up and just a little bit of sockets grunge for good measure.

The session is all demo and code. You'll leave there with an understanding of how the tools work together, how to do some basic animation in Blend, how to create shapes and glass effects in design, and how to build a Silverlight 2 application.

Source code will be available some time after the code camp.

Hope to see you there!
