On 22nd and 23rd October 2010 the DEMO-CAMP East/West, the first complex event for the IT-branch and the Internet start-up happening this year, will take place in Poznan.

The international event will gather Internet start-ups, venture capital, speakers and observers from all over Europe!

DEMOCAMP East/West 2010 stands for the already third edition of the fair for IT and start-up branches. The first edition of DEMOCAMP was held in 2008, and in May 2009 was followed with a more international focus. The great interest from start-ups and media was to be considered as an undoubted success, and that interest proved that there were many creative and unique ideas worth promoting and showing.

Encouraged by the success of previous editions, organizer the Polak 2.0 Foundation, decided to give it a go and continue the event, as it is the only one of its kind to be organized in Central Europe.

The whole event consists of modules like presentations of invited international speakers, the start-up exhibition, ‘unconference’ sessions and presentation stands as well as a discussion panel on co-investing with venture capital.

About 400 guests and participants as well as international competitors are expected to arrive and actively participate in this year DEMOCAMP edition.

There was an increase in the amount of initiatives aiming at the Internet start-ups this year, and DEMOCAMP will be something definitely outstanding!

The activities of the first day are going to be quite exciting, as the international Internet start-up competition will take place! Open to visitors, judged by experts, the competition allows each qualified team (15 this year) to present their ideas and to prove their concepts and business models in front of the public and jury, limited by 5 minutes only presentation time.

The first day also means the discussion panel for the venture capital on co-investing, that gives the companies and support institutions an opportunity to set up new business contacts.

The second day of the DEMOCAMP is marked by the ‘unconference’ session. The formula of ‘unconference’ prescribes that the division into observers and speakers is not natural any more. As the access to knowledge is widespread and easy, everyone with correspondending experience can share and discuss it with others. Numerous ‘unconference’ sessions will be simultaneously run by the participants of the event. An ‘unconference’ session means that every interested person can take the floor and share ideas, solutions and expectations. Recommended topics are those connected with setting up and developing a start-up company and Internet marketing.

So do not wait and join DEMOCAMP today! Become part of a great international event!



DEMOCAMP is organized by the Polak 2.0 Foundation, which was established 2008 by a Polish company netguru ltd. As an experienced organizer of open meetings and Internet-related workshops, the Foundation can be proud of events like Barcamps in its home town of Poznan (more than 20 meetings and 2000 participants in total so far!)  and 24-hour marathon for programmers Hackfest as well as 2 previous editions of DEMOCAMP that happened in only less than two years mostly helped by private donations. The Foundation is open to new experiences and ideas , and 2010 new events like ShopCamp for the Internet shops or FoodCamp for catering industry took place, and got a very positive feedback from its participants. It also recognizes the challenges that every NGO faces, and in September 2010 for the second time, it facilitated BridgeCamp to promote IT among non-governmental organizations.

DEMOCAMP will be held in Poznan, at Poznan International Fair grounds, from 22nd to 23rd October 2010.

Silverlight SlideShow

September 24, 2008 Leave a comment


This is my first blog writing.Today i used silverlight slideshow in project for photogallery.Here is an example of this slideshow.

Here is a live example which i used in my project

Following are the steps to develope this slideshow.

The typical scenario involves the following steps:
Step 1. Determine the Web page to host the Slide.Show control
Step 2. Define a configuration file with the desired behavior and options for the control(i.e.configuration.xml file)
Step 3. Define a data file with the album and slide data for the control(i.e.Data.xml)

Details of all this is as below.

Step 1: Embed the control
At a minimum, a Web page hosting the Slide.Show control requires the following:

  • An external script tag that references the standard Silverlight.js file
  • An external script tag that references the Release version of the SlideShow.js file
  • An inline script tag that creates and embeds the Slide.Show control in the page

First, create a new page in your site with the following content:



<script type=”text/javascript” src=”Silverlight.js”></script>

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”SlideShow.js”></script>



<script type=”text/javascript”>

new SlideShow.Control();




Next, view the page in the browser to make sure everything is wired up correctly. At this point, it’s just an empty slideshow as shown below:

Step 2: Configure the control
To give substance to your empty slideshow, you’ll need to configure it. In the typical scenario, this is done via an XML configuration file. First, modify the inline script tag in your page as follows:

<script type=”text/javascript”>

new SlideShow.Control(new SlideShow.XmlConfigProvider());


Next, create a file named Configuration.xml in the same folder as your page with the following content:

<configuration width=”600″ height=”400″ background=”Silver”> <modules>

<module type=”SlideViewer” />

<module type=”ProgressBar” /> <module type=”SlideDescription” /> <module type=”NavigationTray”> <option name=”thumbnailViewer.left” value=”83″ /> </module> </modules> <transitions> <transition type=”FadeTransition” name=”CrossFadeTransition” /> <transition type=”WipeTransition” name=”WipeRightTransition”> <option name=”direction” value=”Right” /> </transition> </transitions> </configuration>

  • The above configuration overrides the default width, height, and background color of the Slide.Show control, and then adds a few modules and transitions that will provide standard slideshow behavior.
  • Refresh your page in the browser to see the effect of the above configuration – now the control provides both basic and thumbnail navigation, buttons to toggle between album view and full-screen mode, and it will respond to the mouse by sliding in titles and descriptions from the top of the control.

Step 3: Provide data to the control
In the previous step, we configured the size, background color, and behavior of the Slide.Show control. In this final step, we’ll provide album and slide data to the control via an XML data file. First, modify the end of the configuration file as follows: … </transitions> <dataProvider type=”XmlDataProvider” /> </configuration>

Next, create a file named Data.xml in the same folder as your page with the following format: <data transition=”CrossFadeTransition”> <album title=”Album Title #1″ description=”Album Description #1″ image=”Images/Album1.jpg”> <slide title=”Slide Title #1″ description=”Slide Description #1″ image=”Images/Slide1.jpg” thumbnail=”Images/Thumbnail1.jpg” /> … </album> … </data>

Obviously, your data file should be modified to contain real album and slide data specific to your slideshow. Once it’s complete, reload the page in the browser and enjoy your slideshow!
