Flex, Silverlight or HTML5? … Time To Decide

May 2011

Recent advances in web technologies have resulted in a complex landscape for application developers to navigate. Coupled with the recent boom in new platforms, from desktops and netbooks to smartphones and tablets, making an informed and future-proof technology choice is all the more difficult. In this paper we will set technology bias and politics aside to navigate the similarities and differences between Flex, Silverlight and HTML5 to give you the power to decide.

This whitepaper is aimed at technical decision makers who are looking to choose the correct technology for web application development. We begin by looking at the current web development landscape and the complex challenges it presents.

WPF AND SILVERLIGHT; UNIFYING THE DEVELOPMENT PLATFORM FOR DESKTOP, WEB AND MOBILE

October 2010

The recent advances in battery, screen and CPU technology, coupled with a growth in wireless connectivity have made it possible to deliver applications to end-users on a wide range of devices, from conventional computers like desktops, laptops and netbooks, to mobile phones, TVs and even household appliances. Applications are typically served to these devices via the desktop, web and mobile platforms. Unfortunately the languages, tools and frameworks used to develop for these platforms are quite different, making it a costly exercise to distribute applications via all three.

This white-paper describes how Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight unify development across the desktop and web platforms, and with the upcoming release of Windows Phone 7, the mobile platform as well.
