(Music playing) Hello! I am Walt Ritscher and I'd like to welcome you to Silverlight 3 Essential Training. Silverlight is a powerful framework for building line of business programs. It does an amazing job of reproducing the world of Desktop applications and a browser deployed cross-platform framework. In this course, I'll start with an overview of the Silverlight platform. Then take a close look at the new Extensible Application Markup Language, more commonly known as XAML, and see how it simplifies writing Silverlight interfaces.
I'll cover user controls, UI templates, adding media to your interface, energizing your application with animations and plenty more. Along the way, you'll discover lots of interesting tips on how you use Visual Studio and Expression Blend to make Silverlight development a snap. This course is targeted at developers, so a working knowledge of the C# programming language will be required for most of the course. I've been working with Silverlight since the first version was released back in 2007, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to introduce you to Silverlight.
