Product Description
This definitive tutorial will guide you through every aspect of building rich, interactive applications delivered cross-browser and cross platform using Microsoft's new Silverlight technology. Silverlight allows you to harness the power of rich user controls found in Microsoft's Windows Presentation Foundation and Windows Vista, but deliver it to any browser on any supported operating system.

Programming Silverlight begins with a full exploration of XAML and the Silverlight Foundation libraries that support the creation of rich interactive applications. This book is targeted squarely at applications developers who are building cutting edge, high profile, commercial applications, and need a no-nonsense in-the-trenches tutorial to this new and high-demand technology, but who do not need a regurgitation of the documentation.

Best-selling author Jesse Liberty, now Senior Program Manager on the Microsoft Silverlight Development team, tells the complete story of developing applications with Silverlight. He approaches this book from the perspective of the working software developer and targets the needs of both those who are working with professional designers, and developers who are working alone or in small teams. Liberty illustrates every important point with simple but meaningful and reusable examples.
