Microsoft Silverlight

Current Version: 1.0
Summary

Microsofts Silverlight is a new client-side web technology that enables the implementation of visually stunning web applications that depend only on a small, easy-to-install plug-in that works in browsers for both Windows and Macintosh. This two-day course provides the programmer with a thorough foundation in Silverlight 1.0. It pairs well with our three day ASP.NET AJAX course for a full week of instruction on client-side web programming.

After introducing the Silverlight plug-in and SDK, the course provides a thorough survey of Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), which is also the foundation of Windows Presentation Framework (WPF). The course then shows how to use Silverlight to draw shapes, lines, text and images. The positioning and transformation of elements is covered. Event handling is covered. The course concludes with an introduction to advanced features such as animation, on-demand downloading of content and the use of video and audio.

Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided. The student will receive a complete set of notes and all the programming examples.
