Microsoft Silverlight and SOA

Video Podcast Administration Demo ScreenshotThis past weekend I spoke at the Twin Cities Code Camp.  It was a Blast.   My Presentation was Microsoft Silverlight and SOA.  Its new technology so resources at this point are few and far between.  Silverlight itself is only a a 2.0 Beta 1 stage.

During the presentation, I highlighted Silverlight’s abilities to consume and invoke web services.  I wanted to show cross-domain services calls where the server is a non-microsoft based application.

I developed a RESTful Server application in Grails on Linux. 

The demo Silverlight application is a Video Podcast Administration Application.  I specifically wanted to show several client side methods of invoking web services.  I didn’t want to focus on any fancy visual effects video transformations etc. 

Here is code for the Grails Server.

Here is the Silverlight Application code.


My Presentation is in a Google Doc.


I had a blast at Code Camp, It sounds like something I’ll probably do again.

I might also put a short video together to show its functionality for Inetium. I’ll be sure to post it here.

Silverlight Presentation

by on Jan.20, 2008, under RIA, Silverlight

I’m in the process of putting together a presentation for the Twin Cities Code Camp on April 5th 2008.

I am going to focus on Silverlight media (video), and SOA.
Standard asmx web service
WCF Services
JSON based Services (via Grails or PHP)

I may do some page interaction Javascript events etc. Maybe even loading Data from a small EXTJs App.

I’ll have fun with this.  I’ll try to do some live video along with it.

What do you think?
