Silverlight comes to MySpace Developer Platform

In a blog post today, Microsoft Developer Evangelist Michael Scherotter reveals that MySpace will now support Silverlight in its developer platform.  Developers will now be able to create Silverlight applications on MySpace’s OpenSocial based platform.  According to the blog post:

  1. MySpace has just announced support for Silverlight on MySpace’s Open Platform.  Take a look at their new page about Silverlight support.
  2. On Thursday, April 2, MySpace and Microsoft will jointly release a kit on the CodePlex Open Source site (with the MS-PL License) that will make it easy for developers using Visual Studio and designers using Expression Blend to create Silverlight applications on MySpace’s OpenSocial-based developer platform.
  3. Along with Max Newbould, Development Manager for OpenSocial on MySpace, I will be giving a presentation at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco on Thursday, April 2 at 1:30 PM on this Silverlight Kit for MySpace.  The kit should be available on CodePlex at the conclusion of the session.
