From the Author
When I set out to write this edition, I wanted to create the
definitive book on Silverlight for developers. While I spent many sleepless nights to put this together (the more amusing bits are the 4am paragraphs when the geek humor really comes out), it was a labor of love about a product I enjoy using for a community I respect.
I wrote this for both the accomplished developer who is new to Silverlight, and the Silverlight developer who wants to better understand the inner workings of this platform. If you're new to Silverlight, you'll find this book a good choice for getting up to speed. Like great video games where you can go back and replay with a different character for an enhanced experience, you'll find this book to be full of "Ah-hah" moments once you've written a few Silverlight projects.
The full set of source code is downloadable from Manning's site.
