Product Description

Microsoft's Silverlight is the only development platform that combines the performance, security, and flexibility of a desktop application with cross-platform deployment. The latest version, Silverlight 5, offers tons of new features including improved video, audio, and text rendering, enhanced MVVM support, XNA-based 3D and sound APIs, and under-the-hood performance upgrades.

Silverlight 5 in Action is a thorough revision of the bestselling Silverlight 4 in Action. This comprehensive guide teaches Silverlight from the ground up, covering all the new v. 5 features in depth. It also explores WCF RIA Services, MVVM, and more, with dozens of code samples that can be used in Visual Studio 2010 or the free Visual Web Developer 2010 Express.
