Microsoft Silverlight 5 is a rich application framework for creating high-performance, cross-platform desktop and mobile applications. In this course, author Walt Ritscher demonstrates how to build a variety of applications in Silverlight, with particular focus on building compelling business applications and delivering premium video and audio content. Developers will work with the C# programming language and Visual Studio Professional, as well as Expression Blend, a tool that simplifies creation of the interactive user interfaces expected in modern-day applications.
Hi! I am Walt Ritscher, and I want to welcome you to my Silverlight 5 Essential Training series. Silverlight is a cross-platform plug-in that works with all the popular browsers. I'll take a look at how to use Visual Studio and Expression Blend to create and edit your applications. Naturally, I'll have to show you the new Extensible Application Markup Language and how it simplifies writing Silverlight interfaces. After spending time with XAML, I will cover layout panels, Silverlight controls, and I talk about how to add images and media to your page.
I have a section on animations, and storyboards, and another on templates. This title is targeted primarily at developers, which means I will be digging down into topics like Dependency Properties and other programming ideas. If you are a designer, I'd still encourage you to watch this series, as there are many tips and ideas to be seen along the way.
