It's roughly 420 pages long and strikes a good balance between going into detail and covering all the relevant aspects of development.
It begins with an introduction to Silverlight and why it matters in CRM 2011 development. It progresses to Getting Started with Silverlight. There are a ton of books that cover Silverlight development and this isnt' meant to be the definitive guide to Silverlight. However it goes into enough depth that most experienced devs new to Silverlight will be able to get where they want or find the additional information they'd need to get them there.
The next chapter moves on to discuss the role of XAML in silverlight development. The same point I made in the last paragraph holds true here, it's a good introduction to XAML and if you need more information there's a ton of resources out there to find it.
Chapter 4 is where things directly related to CRM/Silverlight dev takes hold. It introduces the Silverlight toolkit and shows you basic scenarios into creating Silverlight controls. Without understanding this - there's not really anywhere to go w/ respect to CRM. so this chapter lays the groundwork for building Silverlight/xap resources which you can consume within CRM.Read more ›
If you plan to use it in your implementation this book is an essential resource.
As per previous book, David explores real cases with pratical examples and full source code. The book starts from basic concepts up to a deep development using design patterns. Also, it's useful the chapter about Sketch tool that can help during the first phase of the project.
We had ordered this book from amazon. After using it I was disappointed of not having found the source code as promised by the author on [...]
The book is helpful and I appretiate that and the language is suitable for a light read. It is comparitavely a thin book and is more of a guide telling the developer where to head. Many ideas such as using Rx with Async CTP really great and helpful.
