Silverlight 2 Visual Essentials (Firstpress)

Buy
Silverlight is a lightweight browser plug–in that frees your code from the traditional confines of the browser. It is a rules–changing, groundbreaking technology that allows you to run rich client applications right inside the browser. Even more impressively, it is able to host true .NET applications in non–Microsoft browsers (like Firefox) and on non–Microsoft platforms (like Mac OS X).

Silverlight is still new and evolving fast, and you need a reliable guidebook to make sense of it.

What you’ll learn

This 176 page book is meant to give you a sense of what you, as a programmer, can expect from Silverlight in terms of what the user is going to see. The emphasis here is on understanding what Silverlight has to offer. While there is some code given, that is not the point of the book. The point is to be ably to quickly understand what functionality is available to you, what options you might have without getting bogged down in much code.

Who is this book for?

We assume that you are a programmer and that you have an understanding of XAML. However, if you do ignore the code that exists in the book, then any lay person or even an administrator, can come to grips with the visual element of Silverlight.
