Silverlight 3 is a cross-platform, cross-browser plug-in that allows designers and developers to collaborate when building Internet applications. This guide shows how to use Silverlight 3 to enhance the Web user experience. The book is primarily intended for developers, but development managers will appreciate the book's jargon-free explanations of how Silverlight fits into the bigger picture of Microsoft Web technology. An introductory section looks at tools used to create and maintain Silverlight experiences, including Microsoft Expression Blend and Microsoft Visual Studio. Part II, programming Silverlight 3 with .NET, covers high-level programming concepts, beginning with a two-chapter tour of built-in controls, and subsequent material on communications, programming for animation, and managing media and images. A companion web site offers C# and XAML code samples. Moroney is affiliated with Microsoft.
