Ever see a website with some amazing effects but no clue how they got them?  Chances are they used a framework like jQuery.  Glimmer is a WPF-based Windows application that allows you to easily create interactive elements on your web pages by harnessing the power of the jQuery library. Without having to hand-craft your JavaScript code, you can use Glimmer's wizards to generate jQuery scripts for common interactive scenarios. Glimmer also has an advanced mode, providing a design surface for creating jQuery effects based on your existing HTML and CSS.

Feel free to blog/tweet if so inclined! You can use screenshots of Glimmer from this post or the attached banner. Also, you can embed the video about Glimmer using this HTML:

<object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," type="application/x-silverlight-2" width="304" height="228">
<param name="source" value="https://channel9.msdn.com/App_Themes/default/VideoPlayer2009_02_24.xap" />
<param name="initParams" value="m=http://mschannel9.vo.msecnd.net/o9/mix/labs/glimmer/glimmer.wmv,autostart=false,autohide=true,showembed=true, thumbnail=http://mschannel9.vo.msecnd.net/o9/mix/labs/glimmer/glimmerVideo.jpg, postid=0" />
<param name="background" value="#00FFFFFF" />

</a>
</object>
