In order to build serious business application in Silverlight (and other client technologies), you have to work with a lot of data. And that data is usually not resident on the client machine, it is usually distributed amongst many clients and is stored and operated on by back-end services. 
If you try to write this kind of application architecture yourself, you have to tackle a lot of technologies and write a lot of plumbing. In the end, most of what you are doing is pushing and pulling data from the client to the back end and invoking operations on the server from the Silverlight client application. What would be great is if most of that plumbing and push-pull logic could be automated for you, allowing you to just focus on what data you need, the rules that surround the manipulation of that data, and how to present it in the client application.
This is exactly what WCF RIA Services does for you. WCF RIA Services is a new part of the .NET 4 and Silverlight 4 frameworks that lets you quickly build N-Tier Silverlight client applications without needing to focus on the service plumbing to get data into and out of your client application from back-end services, logic and data access. This e-book will get you up and running with all the capabilities of WCF RIA Services.
At the end of each chapter you may find a link to the source code used throughout the chapter examples. All source codes are available inside the e-book package.
