Silverlight & Te Papa
- 2 minutes to read
It was 6 months ago to the day that I first wrote about a workshop that we ran in Wellington getting a group of likeminded designers & developers together to get hands on with Windows 7, Silverlight 3, WPF & Expression 3 preceding the launch of these technologies. At the time I specifically called out Tim Tait & the work that he was doing at Te Papa. A couple of months later we released Silverlight 3 and I created a video of some awesome projects from NZ & Abroad using Silverlight + Expression.
I don’t know what it is about museums and their thirst to adopt the latest technology but I previously blogged about Click Suite building an interactive kiosk for Auckland Museum using Windows 7 & WPF. This time it is Te Papa’s turn!
This week while I was down in Wellington I checked in with Tim to see Te Papa’s latest exhibition & his latest work.
Kura Pounamu is a rich and exciting exhibition showcasing examples of this exceptionally beautiful stone, its origins, and stories of the special relationship people have with pounamu.
