Today, I spent about 2 hours in the RIA booth writing my first RIA services, Silverlight 4 App with VS2010. I love it! surprisingly mature for a new product like this. All I can say for now is “RIA Services removes about 4 acronyms between the client and the server”.
I’ll be blogging more about this later, but I’m loving it. The ability to not have to reproduce data structures down to the client is a great dream and something I think this will bring us. Listening to the keynote now from Scott Guthrie, Scott Hanselman, Brian Goldfarb, etc.
