My latest book was just released. From Wrox – Professional Silverlight 4. This was a fun book to do as Silverlight is a great technology and will be one of the core technologies that will be used for so many applications now and in the future. Microsoft really put together something quite splendid here and you will find that this book is a good dive into the technology.

The Silverlight 4 platform continues to add excitement to building rich Internet applications (RIAs), and it offers new user interface controls, expanded capabilities of the Base Class Libraries, and new libraries for building Line of Business applications. This invaluable resource helps you take your existing development skills to the next level so that you can create compelling RIAs with the new Silverlight 4. The trio of veteran authors presents clear and concise coverage of Silverlight essentials and its platforms concepts, while real-world samples enhance your learning process so you can get started building and running RIAs right away.

  • Explains how to build Silverlight applications with Expression Blend 4 and Visual Studio 2010
