Launch of Microsoft's Visual Studio Express Developer Center in Silverlight

I’m very excited to show off a site we just completed.  The project, for Microsoft’s Visual Studio Express products, is the first Microsoft developer center launched in Silverlight.  While some others seem to have Silverlight components, this one was developed in the tool from top to bottom (except of course for the top and bottom, which appear to be HTML). 

Take a look at http://www.microsoft.com/express/:

Especially cool are the interactive product tours.  Click on “explore by product” and then any of the products for a sample.  Very cool stuff. 

With the launch of the Silverlight 2.0 beta at MIX this month, I’m sure you’ll be seeing plenty of other cool sites coming out very soon.  We’re going to do our best to stay on the cutting edge, riding the wave as it grows bigger and bigger.
