    As he promised, Damon Payne has published the material from his MVVM talk at Chicago Silverlight Users Group.

    Thanks to everyone who came out last night, there were a lot of good question.  I was pleased to claim victory over Chicago traffic.

    Yes, we did go to Fogo de Chao afterwards.  I’ve been invited back to hit some more advanced MVVM topics or perhaps a “MEF and Silverlight” show.

    In this article Damon Payne talks about how he set out to write a Binary Serializer for Silverlight and what he learned along the way.

    I have some very large Reference Data entity sets in isolated storage and loading these sets so I can run LINQ queries against them has been extremely painful – I don’t want to have to wait 30 seconds before my feature is usable.  My first analysis lead me to the conclusion that disk IO was my main performance bottleneck and that drastically reducing the file sizes by using Binary Serialization would be just what the doctor ordered.

    Note: This article is submitted by Damon Payne for Silverlight: Write and Win contest.Thanks a lot, Damon! Hello All, Please drop a comment if you like it.

    If you have used or Flickr you may be familiar with Image Hotspots or Hot Regions. This is a region on an image where clicking or hovering the mouse reveals some additional information in a callout or popup. By providing extra information your photographs become more interactive and appealing. In this article we'll build a Hotspot Designer that allows the user to draw Hot Regions on an image, a preview and display control, and a way to save their work.

    Here's a finished example, using a photo of the "gear closet" from my home theater.
