As I said before for my current project I'm working with Silverlight. I've been just playing around with it in my spare time for the last couple of weeks to get a feel for it. All in all it's very easy to get things up and running. Being able to code in C# is a big plus.

I have a very simple and boring puzzle game up and running but that's just the start of the project. My real goal is to come up with some basic web services that can serve resources up to small puzzle games to allow them to be "skinned" or "themed" at run time. Web games are by definition always on the web so why not use that connection for something? Combining a web service like this with a bunch of small games that use the API and you have a suite of games that can morph and change based on a given holiday, theme of the week or even advertiser.

Unfortunately for me I have never coded up a web service so today there was a trip to half price books, a local used book store, to get my hands on some books that will show me how.

Nor had I until my team lead said "everyones using web services, so go make us one"

10mins later I had one created via VStudio 2005 [cool]. Once you've got the ASP.NET Web service project set up it's pretty straight forward - put [WebMethod] attributes before any publicly accessible methods... that sort of thing.

Then again, maybe there is more to web services that I should get to know...
