The ComponentArt Summer Silverlight Coding competition is about to wrap up in a few hours. It has managed to garner approximately 80 entries – all with publicly accessible Silverlight sites.
In the process of hosting this contest, Miljan Braticevic has achieved a wonderful thing – almost as a side-effect. He has gathered a fantastic gallery of Silverlight applications which answer the often unvoiced question: What can one actually do with Silverlight?
If you are simply looking for ideas or, more to the point, trying to find a way to explain to your boss what Silverlight is, go here: http://www.componentart.com/community/competition2009/contestants.aspx .
The contest entries run the full gamut of mapping tools, social networking, dashboards, standard web site alternatives and games.
I do not envy the judges the task of bequeathing their golden apples.
