With Silverlight becoming a growing Line-Of-Business platform, it is increasingly being used to build data-driven business applications. The new book 'Microsoft Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook' by Microsoft Regional Director for Belgium Gill Cleeren and the http://blog.kevindockx.com/ introduces the concepts needed to create data-rich business applications—from the creation of a Silverlight application, to displaying data in the Silverlight application and upgrading your existing applications to use Silverlight.
Written in a cookbook, step-by-step instructions style, this book covers data binding, data controls, the concepts of talking to services, communicating with WCF, ASMX and REST services, and much more. Basic experience of programming Silverlight and familiarity with accessing data using ADO.NET in normal .NET applications is required.
