Okay this video is super duper cool!
You’ve heard of bing.com right? Have you tried out the silverlight maps on bing? WHAT? YOU HAVEN’T!? REALLY!?! You should! Seriously, the bing silverlight maps are way way way cooler than their google counterpart. They are simply mindblowing.
Now, what if I told you, you could integrate those, and the power of the bing geocoding api, AND, the bing search engine, AND routing capabilities, all on a silverlight map, and throw in the Yahoo geocoding api over a REST interface, all running inside SharePoint? And that too as a sandbox solution! (Take that you doubters/haters!)
No seriously! I am not joking!
In this video, I demonstrate exactly the above, all integrated and running happily inside of SharePoint 2010. Note that you can also make this work in SharePoint 2007. I used the Telerik Silverlight Controls to make all this happen. And as always, only about 2% of the video is slides, all of the rest is all hands-on code. The entire application, is written right in front of your eyes, in about an hour.
Plenty of good stuff here
Hope you like it! Have fun!
