Microsoft Popfly – Mashup the web with Silverlight
May 24, 2007
Popfly is a fun, easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages, and applications. They have a tool called the popfly creator which can be used to seamlessly build webpages, applications and gadgets. The interesting part is that they also have a plug in tool for Visual Studio which will enable developers and advanced to tweak the HTML and also enable them to play the role of designers.I think this is a really interesting space and I can realize why Microsoft is spending so much effort and time into building this, as most customers I meet these days want a rich user interface and experience. This is acceptable considering the growth of the RIA space and the need for a page to be engaging and enthralling. Check the links below for more information. Note that this is currently in private alpha and is open by invitation only.
Following are some screenshots.
