The article series on WCF RIA Services by Brian Noyes have received quite a lot of recognition and comments by SilverlightShow Members.

With 7 more articles completing the series, Brian will cover the ins and outs of a technology promising a great productivity boost while reducing the amount of code you have to write.

A new book dedicated to Business Intelligence design and concepts for Silverlight - Silverlight 4 Business Intelligence Software - is coming out in August. The author Bart Czernicki reveals how RIA technologies such as Microsoft Silverlight can be used to transform traditional user-interfaces filled with boring data into fully interactive analytical applications that quickly deliver insight from large data sets.

Targeted at developers, designers and architects, but useful also to BI consultants and CTOs, the book will guide you to unlock the rich intelligence you already have.
