Silverlight preparation

A friend recently decided to start a monthly Hack Day for a small group of colleagues. Given that it's often difficult to motivate oneself to study new technology, the idea is to gather like-minded slackers and force each other to do a little research.

After some discussion, we decided on Silverlight as the first topic. Here's what I did in preparation:

1) Downloaded a VPC image of Orcas (aka VS2008.) You have to download a base image along with the Orcas image - nearly 14GB total.

2) Installed various 1.0 and 1.1 packages:

Silverlight 1.0 Runtime
Silverlight 1.0 SDK
Silverlight 1.1 Alpha Refresh
Silverlight Tools for VS2008
Expression Blend 2 August Preview

3) Watched the Getting Started video and a few Blend tutorials
