Book Review: Microsoft Silverlight 5: Building Rich Enterprise Dashboards

If you are building applications that could use a dashboard then I would recommend taking a look at the PacktPub book “Microsoft Silverlight 5: Building Rich Enterprise Dashboards”. The book focuses on using Silverlight 5 to construct various dashboards and provides guidelines on how to achieve this from start to finish. Along the way are useful tips and tricks and gotchas that can be found when dealing with the various aspects of building a dashboard.

Introduction for the Drupal Community

Hello all! I wanted to write a short introduction of myself as I am now venturing into drupal. My name is Matt Serbinski and some of you may know my brother, Ted Serbinski. He is the one who has gotten me into drupal and I have been part of the drupal community since early 2006, all though very silent.
