Silverlight 3 session this Saturday in Second Life

Quick. Do you know what's new in Silverlight 3? If you hesitated- or if you're not really sure- there is a great (free) event for you to attend this weekend. On Saturday at 12 noon SLT (Second Life Time = Pacific Time), I'll be visiting the Second Life .NET User Group to give a brand new talk on "What's New in Silverlight 3." The talk will cover many of the highlights from the MIX09 Silverlight 3 announcements and you'll actually get to see Silverlight 3 in action. If you're a Silverlight developer and you don't have a chance to visit a local DNUG or Microsoft event, this is a great chance to come-out and learn about Silverlight with the .NET Community. And yes, this event is in Second Life, but don't let that scare you away. All you need to attend this event is the free Second Life software and a free Second Life account. It doesn't cost you anything to "enter" Second Life and visit the SL DNUG meetings, and you don't need a "high powered gaming rig" to run the SL software. I can run the software on my very much not gaming ready ThinkPad T60. So recap: Silverlight 3 at SL DNUG meeting this Saturday, April 25th @ 12 noon Pacific Time.
