This week on Channel 9, Dan and Brian are both back and discuss the week's top developer news including:

Picks of the Week!

Follow the Discussion

  • Silverlight 5 is released and no mention on Channel 9. Sad, very sad Sad

  • Greg Duncangduncan411 It's amazing what a professional photographer can do...

    @nesher: Yeah I hear you... The thing is that SL5 was released after the show was recorded, which usually happens on Thursday (SL5 was released mid-day Friday), so the show can be edited, encoded, show notes done, published, etc by Friday/Saturday.

    But the SL5 story IS the top story for next week... Smiley

    From one of the creators, it is signal R (like a pirate).

  • Dan FernandezDan

    @David Fowler: Doh! It looks like our second guess was wrong, thanks for the correction!

  • (like a pirate).

    LOL! I love how that's a perfectly understandable phonetic description. Smiley

    Thanks!

  • Is the liveSDK "live"?  Can it be used for production WP7 apps now?

  • Jenson's "8 traits" session at BUILD has had the Windows 8 app store sales projections, as quoted here (01:53) redacted.

    The figures are wrong. "point zero five" 0.05 "million dollars" is incorrect.

    $1 app gives a margin of about 70c (ignoring MS bonus efficiencies), so a market share of 0.05% gives 200,000 units sold and $140,000.00 profit.

    I think the speech writer didn't realise that 0.05 is actually 5%, since all the math is out by a factor of 10.
