In this deep dive session we pull the covers off of the layout, rendering, and media pipelines to discuss how things work and how to optimize your application. This session covers how to set goals with your designer and developer teams, what happens behind the scenes with control visuals, the underlying mechanisms of our media stack, and how to profile your application.

    So was wondering, has Silverlight 2 been fully released? Is the site using the official SL2 player? Or is it another Beta release (SL 2 Beta 3?).

    This is a fantastic presentation that gives some great insights into how your design and development decisions can affect Silverlight performance.  Mike Snow has produced a nice summary of the main points on his excellent Silverlight Tips blog series, so I won't attempt to do that here, but this is a presentation you should watch if you are using Silverlight in a business environment.
