At this month's meetup session Kumar Unnikrishnan will be presenting his talk from the Great Indian Developer Summit on making the leap from developing for Silverlight to developing for AngularJS.

We will compare and contrast Silveright with AngularJS. We will talk briefly why we chose AngularJS and high level look at its internals. Compare some of the core features of Silverlight like Binding, Commands, IValueConverter, Data Template and Unit testing in conjunction with a very simple example and see how we can leverage the knowledge to Angular world.
