So today (or yesterday as it is past midnight) was the first day of New England Give Camp. We met all the charities and the developers that are making their projects a reality.
My team is building an application to deliver messages to the children at the hospital. These messages will appear as balloons that float up on the screen. The powers that be decided that we should use Silverlight. Since I am the project lead I decided it was a good opportunity to use some of the following technologies:
- Silverlight 4
- WCF RIA Services
- Entity Framework
Most of the people on my team have very little Silverlight experience but that should not be a problem. The project is not that complex and is an excellent one to learn on.
Tonight we got the project structure organized and worked on getting the pieces in order. We have gotten our project up on CodePlex (will be making it public later) and the developers have all the code. We went through some initial brainstorming. Our designer is working on the screen shots. In the morning we should be ready to get rolling.
It should be fun!
