Publicising a different user group for a change; the London .NET User Group hosted a couple of sessions with Scott Guthrie on the 2nd of July.

Ian Smith who is the cameraman for our Silverlight UK User Group was present, recording the event and has recently published the video below.

In Part 3 he uses coding examples to show the core Silverlight 3 concepts, and takes a lively Q&A session.
