Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have done a lot of SharePoint custom development and I see Silverlight as the answer to the horrible web part programming model Microsoft has made available in SharePoint. I have yet to see anyone write SharePoint web parts that aren't spaghetti code. Every major web part implementation I have seen has been a big ball of mud, and I have seen a lot. I moved to Silverlight for web parts as soon as I could. It is a great programming model.

Microsoft continues to play the top secret game with regards to Silverlight so rumors of lack of browser support in the next year or two are being allowed to flourish. I am not willing to tell customers they should spend a year or two investing in Silverlight just so they can start over when they finally start reaching maturity. So for now, because of Silverlight, SharePoint custom development is off my future list of recommendations as well.

So then, why read and recommend this book? The current enterprise I am working in uses Silverlight for web part development. There is no plan to change that. If for some reason I end up in another enterprise that wants custom web parts developed and they want me to do it, it will be in Silverlight or nothing. Although it appears Microsoft has abandoned Silverlight, until they offer something along the same lines for SharePoint web part development I am sticking with Silverlight.

Because of that, I decided to purchase this book. I am now really glad I did. It is a great book.

The book is broken down into three parts. I have listed them and the chapters they contain below.

Part 1 Getting Started - Getting Started with SharePoint and Silverlight, Introduction to SharePoint Development, and Introduction to Silverlight Development.

Hot off the presses is Bob German and Paul Stubbs SharePoint and Silverlight book. The credibility of these guys is off the map. Bob German has been around in the SharePoint world since the earliest of days. He's a great friend and has huge credibility inside and outside of Microsoft. Highly recommend his blog at [...] In addition, Paul Stubbs has been at the core of the development evangelism camp. He's done some great things for uniting the SharePoint development community. You can check out his blog at [...]
As the world is anxious on their bets around Silverlight, this book puts a firm stake in the ground on SharePoint 2010 and says go for it. With client object models and working with RESTful service it becomes a great way of working with SharePoint both in the enterprise space and with Office 365 in the cloud. Really this book could easily say working with data and SharePoint and while the title wouldn't be as catchy it would be really sharing the goodness that's in here. The book isn't exclusively about Silverlight at all. That's my key take away. You could say you'll never use Silverlight and LOVE the heck out of this book. Mastery of the client APIs and cloud APIs could definitely takes a leap forward with this book. If you are looking for hard core examples of doing real development outside the build a server solution box, this is where you should look.
The guys do address the HTML 5 question right at the beginning of the book. The ability to build rich business applications in the browser with Silverlight has a proven and mature track record.
Get it now.

By Erik on January 2, 2012
Format: Paperback
Great reference on using Silverlight inside SharePoint. Goes much deeper than a general SharePoint development book can and addresses many topics that will make applications look better (ribbon integration, connected webparts for example), more robust (server side exception handling in csom) and faster (html bridge, paging, csom loading). A lot of practical development (coding) advice, but also describes larger solutions (navigation, cloud) that show examples of more complex architectures.

It has primers on both technologies, starting with how to install SharePoint and a Silverlight introduction, so you may end up skimming through the parts you're already familiar with, but if you've never seen Silverlight code before you might want to pick up a book on that.
