How I created my popfly carousel

If you go to the blog entry on Microsoft Surface you will be asked to install Microsoft Silverlight.  When you do so you will see a carousel effect to show the 12 Surface pictures.  As many of you know I am NOT a developer by any means, so I thought I would show you what I had to do to get to the finished product - it is not hard at all.

1st off I signed up for a Popfly account at http://www.popfly.com and was lucky enough to get an account very quickly.

OK, so I dropped 3 blocks onto the screen - one to read the RSS fead of the Surface pictures, one to pull out the picture urls and one to display them.  That was it (well I did drag those blue lines across too)

 

Here is what I put in the RSS feed

Here is what I put in the filter

Here is what I put in the carousel initially (I changed it to a more complex piece of code later to change the screen resolution of the images it pulls down)

 

that was it.  That is why popfly is so simple to combine things together.

It's just not fair, so I'm off to sulk!
