While I was registered and packed for PDC10, I was sidelined by being behind on a critical project and a wife with a broken foot the day I was suppose to fly to SEA. My disappointment in missing the event is only surpassed by the controversy over Silverlight/HTML5.
Did Microsoft do a poor job presenting there strategy or did we do a poor job listening? I think a little of both.
My team and I have invested a lot in the Silverlight stack and plan on continuing for some time. Below are some links to articles, blogs and such that I think address the confusion head on and reinforce my idea that Silverlight is here to stay. At the same time HTML is undergoing dramatic changes that we need to keep a close eye on.
