  • The focus is on the visual elements of Silverlight
  • The reader will not get bogged down in code; this is a feature/use oriented book.
  • Programmers are assumed to have knowledge of XAML, but if your interest is only in knowing what Silverlight has to offer visually, no programming background is necessary.
  • We are entering the market with a proven author and an angle toward the developer that we have historically been successful with
  • Silverlight appeals to users not only of Windows, but other OSes and browser platforms as well, increasing demand for a technology that is already hugely anticipated

Silverlight is a lightweight browser plug–in that frees your code from the traditional confines of the browser. It is a rules–changing, groundbreaking technology that allows you to run rich client applications right inside the browser. Even more impressively, it is able to host true .NET applications in non–Microsoft browsers (like Firefox) and on non–Microsoft platforms (like Mac OS X).

Silverlight is evolving fast, and you need a reliable guidebook to make sense of it.
