Silverlight World Premiere huge success (update)

With almost 1,000 people registered to attend from over 61 countries and about 400 actually making the live event, I think we can say the interest in Telerik's Silverlight controls is huge. The world premiere event today for Telerik's RadControls for Silverlight went very well and I want to thank everyone that attended. Hopefully the early look at Telerik's work in the Silverlight space gives you confidence that we are committed to the framework and already well on our way to producing the best UI components available on the market.

For everyone that missed the event live (or had trouble dialing-in to the audio bridge), I have moved quickly to make the on-demand version available online today! Check out the recorded version right now (download is about 50 MB) and then take a look at the "Follow-up Question & Answer" PDF that contains all unique questions asked during the presentation with answers. If you still have questions that aren't addressed there, feel free to leave them in the comments and I'll be happy to help.

Now on to the Q3 release next week! Don't forget that you'll be able to get your hands on the online demos showcased today during next week's release activities.

UPDATE: For those not able to view the WMV version of the recorded webcast with the GoToMeeting codec, I have re-encoded and uploaded a Quicktime version. The new version is available from the original on-demand link.

Great webinar last night - even if I did have to dial in with Skype ;-) Looking forward to getting started with Silverlight and your controls.

Glad you liked it! We'll definitely try to work on some audio alternatives for the future.

I had problems connecting to the webinar, the software kept failing on connect and I was trying for at least 15 mins before the start time :|.

Is the download available yet?

Todd Anglin said...

Absolutely. Just look for the link in the above post for the "recorded version" and enjoy!

To fix your domain name issue can you use a CNAME alias instead of an A record for the "www" issue?

Just an idea.

Todd Anglin said...

Matt-

That's definitely a great idea and one I tried many moons ago. In fact, the CNAME alias still exists for the domain name, but clearly it has no effect. Hopefully some changes will come soon that will help solve the problem.

Matt-

Another follow-up. The DNS issue is finally resolved! Thanks to your comment, I started doing some more research and it turns out Blogger added (at some point) a feature to automatically redirect "www" to your base domain. Who knew?! Either way, both domain names now finally work.

what codec is needed for teh video, it won't play on my machine.

Todd Anglin said...

The recorded webcast requires the GoToMeeting codec for playback. Just Google that phrase and you'll find the codec installer. I will be uploading a re-encoded version in the next hour or so. Look for an update in the post at that time.
