Silverlight and AIR events

Tomorrow I’m off to the Silverlight Academic Day and I’ve just registered for the AIRTour London event on 9th April – both programmes look good and it’s a good opportunity to compare roadmaps and applications. Silverlight is more of a Flash/Flex rival of course, but it will be interesting to finally be able to see how each company presents its product and what the differences are.

Reports to follow – I have some preconceptions about Silverlight that I don’t think will be overturned, namely that it’s Flash/Flex for for .NET developers and that converting a legion of Adobe design tool users to an MS Expression/Silverlight workflow is going to be almost impossible, but I think Adobe has to keep moving now that Silverlight is available and MS can push it out widely via Windows Update.
