Product Description

"We did what would normally take six months in eight days-with a team learning from scratch." -from Chapter 1 of Hacking Silverlight

Writing good code is hard enough using established, well-documented technologies; with something new like Silverlight, you need to think like a hacker. Hacking Silverlight is a unique tutorial that shows the reader how to build great Silverlight web applications fearlessly. Each chapter starts and ends with carefully annotated code examples that range from Silverlight basics to undocumented techniques you won't find anywhere else.

Author David James Kelley is part of an elite group hand-picked by Microsoft to test early Silverlight builds and develop sample applications. This book guides the reader through a running case study of an actual, large-scale Silverlight project.
