Desirables : Sharepoint and Silverlight - yuck
zag (6th March 2014)
Sharepoint isn't so bad, but Silverlight? No no no no no!
Didnt' MS already all but can Silverlight? No need for it this day and age.
I seem to remember someone from Capita mentioning Silverlight, may have been in this thread...
EDIT: it was this thread:

Wait, what? Silverlight... aren't we moving away from plugins? Even Windows RT blocks plugins right?
Silverlight hasn't had a major release for over 2 years! Even Netflix - one of the few major Silverlight users - has announced it is moving to HTML5 for its service.
As I said... no no no no no!
PhillipHamlyn (Capita) stated earlier in this thread that although they're using Silverlight in the version in NI at the moment, there will be no plugin dependancy by the time of final release: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/mis-sy...ml#post1128013
I hope the s don't learn how EduGeeks react to LIGHT
As I said in an earlier post, we are going to convert all our existing Silverlight tech to HTML, thus the usefulness to us of candidates with Silverlight expertise. :-)

Sure they'll do wonders for Capita image too. Help destroy that image that they are the enemy, they are the "man" pushing the people down and we the the people must rebel, yer man. It's Friday, may the dots all connect.
More serious note, be good to see a bit of public humor coming out of Capita HQ. Long gone are the days of ASSman and if they do go MSI, so will the Wise installer with it's unwise.exe uninstaller. Be nice if they can include a bit in the new version.
Do you know why I called the SIMS7 main applicaiton Pulsar.exe ? Its because the internal name of the product was Super Star, Star being the internal product name of the previous edition. Thus a Pulsar is a Super Star. Geeky but my kind of in-joke.
I'll try and inject some levity :-)
