Silverlight is Microsoft s new web-based User Interface (UI) technology, based on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), which is introducing many revolutionary concepts in the world of UI development. Silverlight uses XAML, with tools like Expression Design and Expression Blend, to create astonishing UI effects (such as gradients, compositions, and animations.) In addition to the richness of the UI elements, Silverlight 2 allows the use of C# or VB in addition to JavaScript to automate web pages. With Silverlight, you have the power of .NET on multiple platforms (IE and Firefox on Windows, Firefox and Safari on Macintosh, and Firefox on Linux). The author brings you up to speed very quickly with numerous hands-on examples.Use XAML to create state-of-the-art user interfacesCreate XAML transforms and animationsDesign compelling user experiences with Microsoft Expression BlendIntegrate media into your rich Internet applicationsProgram Silverlight with both JavaScript and .NET languagesDeploy Silverlight content to web pagesEncode videos with Expression Media EncoderMake the most of Silverlight elements, resources, and stylesUse templates to quickly change your application s look and feelEfficiently debug Silverlight codeUse design tools to create graphics that import seamlessly into Silverlight Laurent Bugnion has been a software engineer since 1996.
