Additional Material

While you are there, don't forget that in addition to the 965 printed pages, purchasers also have to access to 150 pages of downloadable content, including:

  • Media basics
  • Raw Media, Webcam, Microphone
  • Introduction to WCF RIA Services
  • WCF RIA Services Endpoints, Security, Logic and more
  • WCF RIA Services MVVM

All the downloadable content went through the same quality and editing process, so it's real book material.

Silverlight 5 is a great platform, especially for building business applications. Among many other changes, the enhancements to trusted applications and the addition of p-invoke make it an excellent choice for building today's business applications. The addition of a built-in 3d engine make it great for cutting edge visualizations, interactive CAD-like tools, and even gaming.
