One thing I really hate about doing Silverlight development is trying to search for good information on the Internet. When I look for a solution to a problem I am having, I always run into a lot of “noise” in the form of outdated posts that aren’t relevant anymore. There are a ton of questions, answers, and sample solutions on the web from developers working with the Silverlight 2 Beta release. I know this was all helpful information to share at the time, but a lot of it is useless now. The problem is, sometimes you have to read the post a bit in order to figure out that the developer was on the Beta. I’ve gotten to the point where the first thing I do is look at the date on the post before I read on. What makes this even more complicated, is sometimes the information in these posts is still relevant and very helpful!
Oh well, at least we are lucky to be developers in an age where so much information is shared among members of the community. Can you imaging having to read manuals for all your information ? I don’t mean to discourage anyone from posting. Don’t take me too seriously, I’m just ranting.
