Readers of my blog will probably have noticed that I have a keen interest in both charting and performance. My friends over at Visiblox have combined these both to create what is one of the fastest charts for WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone 7, see my recent benchmark blog post for details. What's more, this performance has been achieved without sacrificing API clarity; the Visiblox charts can be instantiated with concise and clean XAML or manipulated from code-behind.

The guys at Visiblox told me that they are giving away free licences for their charting products to anyone who is a current Microsoft MVP, so I thought I'd share that with you in case you're interested. For more details on this offer please contact Visiblox directly.

If you are an MVP, give these charts a whirl ...

I'd better get back to work on the cross-platform (WPF, Silverlight, WP7) application that I will be demoing at the next Silverlight UK User Group meeting, and yes, it uses Visiblox charts!
