About the Tour: The Silverlight Tour is a four-day intensive course on Silverlight 4. Through lessons, demonstrations and hands-on labs, you will learn and experience the ins and outs of design, development and server-side programming with Silverlight. The workshop covers Expression Blend and Visual Studio, architecting Silverlight solutions, communication with servers, creation of Dynamic XAML content and more (check the full list of topics covered).

The class shows Silverlight 4 as well as the latest toolset from Microsoft (including Visual Studio 2010, Expression Blend 4, Expression Design, Expression Encoder, Deep Zoom Composer). Throughout the course attendees work on several labs, part of a full Silverlight application.

Silverlight is about building Internet applications so experience building web applications is encouraged. In addition, since Silverlight utilizes .NET to build online experiences, familiarity with .NET is suggested. No specific experience with WPF or XAML is necessary.

Bonus: each attendant gets a diploma, a "Silverlight 3 Jumpstart" book and a free license of Telerik's RadControls for Silverlight ($999 value).
