Popfly for easy mashups

Popfly is the fun, easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages, and applications. “Drag, drag, click – you’ve got a Flikr + Virtual Earth mashup.” Popfly is a small part of a snowballing movement in Microsoft toward supporting and experimenting with the hobbyist community using free development and collaboration tools. Consider it Microsoft embracing and extending the concept of Yahoo pipes in Sliverlight.

Popfly consists of two three parts:

1 Popfly Creator is a set of online visual tools for building Web pages and mashups.

2 Popfly Space is an online community of creators where you can host, share, rate, comment and even remix creations from other Popfly users.

3 Popfly Explorer is a plugin for Visual Studio that enables you create, modify, and share Visual Studio solutions from your Popfly Space.

Popfly is supported on the Visual Studio 2005 product line:

  • Visual Basic Express 2005
  • Visual C# Express 2005
