clip_image001Showing off your photos has always been a lot harder than it should be. So we thought that might make an interesting topic for a Silverlight reference application.

Vertigo Software have been working hard on a follow up to their previous reference example application for WPF, family.show and are now happy to announce the release of Slide.Show, a Silverlight 1.0 application open to the public. The source, available on CodePlex. Slide.Show, shows off some of the latest Silverlight technologies while also providing an elegant and simple photo sharing user experience 🙂

 

For more information you can visit either the Vertigo landing page or the codeplex site:

The CodePlex project: http://codeplex.com/slideshow (please go kick the tires and add cool new features to the code base)

Last week we got our party shoes on and attended the BIMA Awards 2007.  It was held at the Truman Galleries and was a fab evening. Always great to hear about all the cool solutions being delivered. We hosted a table and Steve gave an award.

Take a look at the photos from the night.

Images 24/25/28/29 are of our table. See the guys from AllofUs, Lightmaker, Monochrome & Splendid all dressed up for the occasion! 🙂 Congratulations to AllofUs for the award they won for the BBC History project.

You can find the winners listed here.
