Randy George has done a fair amount with the new (not release afaik) Silverlight control. It is pretty nice and has the Bing maps built in.

Subject: Re: [Geowanking] Django vs. .NET
thanks for all the responses to my question. It sounds like it's pretty difficult to try compare the two platforms. I was mostly wondering about general similarities in the process of developing on either platform, rather than the underlying specs. I think I will continue working with ASP.NET in the mean time but am eager to take a closer look at Django somewhere down the line. Has anyone here done any developing with the Bing Maps service? I just saw recently that they have some SDKs for it available to developers.

There are far too many differences to list here, but here are a few major ones:
1. GeoDjango, Django, Python, etc. normally run on top of a UNIX stack (specifically Linux, Apache or Nginx, and MySQL or PostgreSQL).
2. ASP.NET runs on the Microsoft stack so you'd have entirely different components (IIS, SQL Server, Windows Server, etc.).
If you're currently a PHP/MySQL/LAMP developer I'd go with Python/Django as you'll be leveraging components you likely already know a lot about.

I'm pretty new to the geowanking community and have become well aware of the fact that there are many savvy web developers here with a penchant for all things geo. Currently, I am exclusively using ASP.NET (and SQL Server) for web development, but I have experience developing with PHP/MySQL. I was introduced to the GeoDjango framework by this listserv and was wondering if anyone who has prior experience with ASP.NET could explain some of the benefits of going the Python/Django route for web development, and more specifically, using GeoDjango and what some of the major differences are from developing in ASP.NET?
