Why to go and attend Microsoft Technical sessions conducting by Microsoft
Anyway they will show these demos .
Why to spend money in going there and putting leaves to offices.

Dont waste time if you want to learn Silverlight especially by going there and wasting time and money.
And why to make your project deadlines more stringent by putting leaves.
I dont want the developers to waste time and effort like me.
So I put some effort in collecting the list of URLs they will show
Starting from last year the below are the list of demos they will show.
