SilverlightDevCampSF is an upcoming gathering, inspired by BarCamp, to build Silverlight applications, It's organized by volunteers & Silverlight enthusiasts, with attendance free to all.


While similar to iPhoneDevCamp this event is focused on a singular technology, we'd like offer some diverse sessions like using PHP to generate Silverlight content, IronRuby/IronPython & the DLR or Moonlight on Linux.


Attendees will include web designers, developers, testers, all working together over the weekend to build Silverlight applications, share experiences, ask questions, and push the limits of web application design. If you're interested in Silverlight, but haven't had time to learn, this is your chance to get up to speed. Plus you'll be able network with other developers in the bay area who are interested in Silverlight.


If you can't make it to this event, SilverlightDevCampChicago will be taking place on Sept. 28th and 29th.




If you have any questions, are interested in sponsoring the event, or would like to present a session, contact: silverlightdevcamp@gmail.com

We are actively seeking additional sponsors to help cover amenities. All sponsors will be thanked during the kickoff and will have their logos printed on the sponsors banner assuming there is a sponsor banner to print. Sponsoring a BarCamp event is not about lead generation, it's more like a donation - you're supporting the effort by supporting the attendees.


Meal sponsors: Developers need to eat/drink. The better the meal, the better the code.


Awards sponsors: We are looking for more some awards sponsors. Awards should somehow tie into Silverlight development


Please contact silverlightdevcamp@gmail.com if you are interested in being a sponsor.
