The Flickr.Net library has been getting a bit of love recently.
Firstly, it got mentioned on the dotnetrocks podcast a week or so ago, a talk with Chris Hardy about Monotouch.
Postcast:Â http://www.dotnetrocks.com/default.aspx?showNum=568 – Flickr.Net is mentioned about 31minutes in. You can also view Chris’s talk at the NDC conference here:Â http://streaming.ndc2010.no/tcs/?id=815EADB7-066D-4516-A70F-31EEFDFB1DE2 – he does a demo using the Flickr.Net library in Monotouch at about the 40minutes mark.

Recently I’ve been trying to work out how best to convert the Flickr.Net library over to Silverlight. Unfortunately it’s not as easy as it sounds, because most of the methods the library uses to talk to Flickr are only available in their asynchronous versions in Silverlight, which means the entire stack has to be converted to an asynchronous pattern.
Anyway, I’m almost there in terms of deciding on a method to use (maybe that is worth another post later) but in the mean time there is a post on the Silverlight Show web site about using Silverlight and Flickr which I’m using as my inspiration – the sooner the article is out of date the better :)
