    Silverlight 4 in Action
    Coming Soon...

    Product Description

    Silverlight in Action, Revised Edition is a fast-paced, comprehensive tutorial that guides the reader from creating "Hello World" to coding production-quality, data-driven rich internet applications with graphics, audio, and video content. Written for a developer who already knows how to code in C#, this fluff-free book covers the basics quickly and dives into the heart of Silverlight development using XAML (a language for creating user interface elements) and Visual Studio 2010. You'll learn not only how to accomplish tasks, but how the underlying runtime works.

    In addition to the fundamentals, the book covers the new features in Silverlight like pixel shaders, webcam and microphone, as well as WCF RIA Services and patterns like MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel). It explains developing offline and "out-of-browser" applications, managing video and audio, handling validation, navigation and deep-linking, and how each Silverlight feature fits into the overall Silverlight ecosystem.

    After a little delay, Tim Heuer finally introduces JetPack – a new Silverlight 4 application theme.

    Source: Method ~ of ~ failed

    I’m really excited about this theme and the work that our team put together here. You may have see Tsitsi talk about theming in general and introduce this theme on Silverlight TV. The challenge behind this theme was to take some of the excitement around other Silverlight themes and create a great looking overall theme that could be used for line-of-business applications, but also extended as desired by any other application.

  • Review of the book 'Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration'

    0 comments  /  posted by  Svetla Stoycheva  on  Sep 07, 2010 (5 days ago)

    David Kelley did a quick review of the book 'Silverlight 4 and SharePoint 2010 Integration' (the book is available with 20% discount for SilverlightShow community).

    The chapters are broken out in detail covering related topics from just creating a web part in sharepoint (which if you have never done it before is a pain and having it well documented in a book is great) to WCF, RIA, Rich Media and all the points in between. The book isn't thick and short on words but as mentioned lots of examples which is what is important to me.

  • Building an App Marketplace with MEF

    0 comments  /  posted by  Svetla Stoycheva  on  Sep 06, 2010 (6 days ago)

    Gill Cleeren (sign up for his upcoming webinars for SilverlightShow, October 14th and October 27th) has posted the code for a MEF Marketplace sample in Silverlight.

    For a presentation I’m giving shortly, I rebuilt something similar but in Silverlight: the MEF Marketplace in Silverlight. The setup is the following: a user gets an overview of apps he purchased in the market place and can run these on demand. The market place app will download the applications available to the user after the application has started, so this app mainly is a hosting shell for the other ‘purchased” applications to run in. Of course, the sample is a demo and can be extended quite a lot. For example, in the current implementation, I hard-coded the list of purchased apps and there’s no option to buy new ones. Also, it could be extended so that when new apps are purchased, a duplex service notifies the client of this and MEF downloads the new app in the background.

    But, instead of talking of what could be added, let’s take a look at what I currently built already!

  • Silverlight and Security Documentation

    0 comments  /  posted by  Svetla Stoycheva  on  Sep 06, 2010 (6 days ago)

    Cheryl, who owns the security node for the Silverlight documentation on MSDN, has created a security topic for Silverlight 4 release. She saw the need for that following an article concluding that Adobe has put the most effort into security and documenting secure practices.

    Recently, there was an article in EWeek about the various platforms for Rich Internet Application (RIA) development, including Silverlight. It was an interesting article but one thing I found a bit worrisome is the author’s conclusion that Adobe has put the most effort into security and documenting secure practices. I own the security node for the Silverlight documentation on MSDN, which means that although I don’t own the feature-specific security concerns, I am responsible for pulling all these pieces together in a coherent way. As part of this charter, for the Silverlight 4 release I created a security topic based largely on a security whitepaper written by Nick, a PM for Silverlight. I worked with Nick to create this topic and it was reviewed by the Silverlight security team.

  • Gill Cleeren's Cookbook with Numerous 5-star Reviews on amazon

    Gill Cleeren boasts on his blog about the 12 five star reviews received by users on his book Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook. Sample chapter from the book and SilverlightShow interview with Gill are available on SilverlightShow, expect our interview with the co-author Kevin Dockx too.

    I was looking at Amazon today and noticed that there were now already 12 reviews on our (Kevin and myself) book, giving the book a whopping 5 star rating, which is of course great!

    Here are some of the excerpts:

    Ideal for those who prefer a tutorial-oriented writing style, August 30, 2010 5.0 out of 5 stars
    HOW THIS COOKBOOK WORKED FOR ME: In contrast, this book ("Microsoft Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook" from PACKT) certainly proved valuable to me by appealing to my learning style, and delivering what was advertised on the cover. I was able to learn a reasonable amount of SL4 specifically for handling business data, using "Microsoft Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook". The format and approach is ideal for those among us who prefer to "cut to the chase" instead of wading through lengthy tirades. The examples build on one another which served to reinforce key concepts through out the book-- money well spent from my perspective.
