WPF/Silverlight and Expression Resource Part II
There are so many great resources on WPF/Silverlight and Expression Studio available after MIX. It's time to do a part II of the resource listing continuing on the previous WPF and Expression Resource post.
- Microsoft Silverlight Homepage
- Silverlight.net: a more community-oriented site than the link above, which includes a lot of Silverlight showcases built by Microsoft partners and community enthusiasts.
- WindowsClient.net: a new community site for WPF and Windows Forms, which provides a common place for the community to understand a unified .NET/Windows client offering.
- MIX website: home for visual MIX experience, where you can watch all the sessions on-demand. I strongly recommend watching the keynote by Ray Ozzie and Scott Guthrie. It not only introduces new web technologies such Silverlight but also put everything together into Microsoft's vision for the future of web experience.

- Popfly: a fun and easy way to build and share mash-ups, gadgets and Web pages using pre-built “Blocks” that connect to online services. Here's a video to see Popfly in action.
- Silverlight Showcase
- WPF Application Portfolio: a very comprehensive list of applications built using WPF. Most of the applications can be downloaded.
- Tim Sneath's great WPF application blog series.
- Building Schools for the Future (BSF): "The BSF Showcase is a proof of concept produced by the UK MCS User Experience team to show how new technologies might be used in the future to better support education."
- Vertigo Lab demos: a list of showcases with WPF, Silverlight, and other Microsoft technologies.
- WPF Hands-on Labs: including "Using Data Binding in WPF," Creating Rich 2D and 3D content in WPF," and much more.
