SilverlightDevCampChicago is an upcoming gathering, inspired by BarCamp, to build Silverlight applications, It’s organized by volunteers & Silverlight enthusiasts, with attendance free to all. Plus you can help plan it or lead sessions with a simple edit of the event wiki page.

Attendees will include web designers, developers, testers, all working together over the weekend to build Silverlight applications, share experiences, ask questions, and push the limits of web application design. If you’re interested in Silverlight, but haven’t had time to learn, this is your chance to get up to speed. Plus you’ll be able network with other developers in the Chicago area who are interested in Silverlight. While similar to iPhoneDevCamp this event is focused on a singular technology, we’d like offer some diverse sessions like using PHP to generate Silverlight content, IronRuby/IronPython & the DLR or Moonlight on Linux.

In the barcamp spirit, this is a community event driven by attendee participation and contribution. If you have ideas for topics or you want to show off some Silverlight applications you’ve built, please add it to SilverlightDevCampChicagoSessions.

The SilverlightDevCamp in SF 2 weeks ago had over 100 attendees. Notes from the sessions can be viewed at SilverlightDevCamps are also planned for Seattle, Dallas, and DC.
