[White Paper] Migrating from Silverlight to Wijmo 5

Learn how you can migrate an application away from Silverlight and into HTML/JavaScript in this new white paper by ComponentOne CTO, Bernardo de Castilho. In the paper, Bernardo takes a simple Silverlight application and walks through, step-by-step, porting the ViewModel and the View into HTML5. Download the White Paper (PDF) Bernardo notes that "When Microsoft decided to stop investing in Silverlight, many developers were faced with a tough decision. How could they migrate to modern web platforms and not throw away all the benefits of MVVM and the knowledge they gained by using Silverlight?" You may have asked yourself the same question, and concluded, like Bernardo, that HTML5 was the best option but found yourself at a loss in migrating your applications. In the paper, Bernardo breaks down migrating from Silverlight to HTML5 into a simple process. He uses Microsoft's DataServicesQuickStart, a simple example app that illustrates many of the key features of Silverlight and MVVM apps, and migrates it to HTML5. The ported application is smaller and faster, runs on more devices and platforms, and has an adaptive layout which re-flows depending on the device used. Check out the original application and the migrated HTML5/JavaScript app.
