Doing More with Silverlight

1 hr Apr 21, 2010: 1 pm EST & Apr 22, 2010: 10 am EST

Silverlight is a growing technology and it’s being used more and more around the world for creating rich, interactive business applications for both the Web and desktop development.

This Webcast dives right into many of the development tasks crucial to business applications. These tasks may be considered extremely easy in other development platforms, such as Windows Forms and ASP.NET, but in Silverlight they come with a twist. These tasks include implementing simple page navigation, creating dialog windows, and styling controls. You’ll learn how to complete these tasks from the ground up so you can take this knowledge and apply it to your own applications. And since we’re working with business applications we have to deal with data somehow, you’ll learn more ways to access data in Silverlight.
