Vikram Pendse, an ASP.NET MVP from Pune, India, is a self-confessed Silverlight enthusiast. Though he blogs about all things .NET on his blog, Explore .NET with Vikram Pendse, he went into a Silverlight overdrive after Silverlight 3 Beta was unveiled at MIX09.
We understand the excitement since Silverlight 3 Beta introduces more than 50 new features, including support for running Silverlight applications out of the browser, dramatic video performance and quality improvements, and features that radically improve developer productivity.
