Silverlight Mashups

John Musser, October 11th, 2007

Microsoft made headlines earlier this year when they released Silverlight, their RIA compeitor to Adobe Flash. Since it’s so new we haven’t seen a lot of mashups built with it but did recently get this new entry Silverlight Photo Carousel, an interactive photo carousel displaying interesting photos using Silverlight and the Flickr API. You can read more about how the application was built on developer Nikhil Kothari’s blog.

Given that Microsoft’s innovative Popfly mashup builder uses Silverlight extensively we might start seeing some interesting Silverlight mashups once that service moves out of private alpha.
