Overview

Silverlight 5 is the latest iteration of Microsoft's cross-browser technology for creating rich user experiences on the Web. Like its predecessor, it rides atop the .NET Framework for maximum ease of use and coding efficiency. The new technology carries forward much of the work that has been done before and augments it in many important respects, including support for H.264 video, major improvements to the graphics engine (including true 3D rendering), and much richer data-binding options for interfacing with other applications.

Pro Silverlight 5 in C# is an invaluable reference for professional developers who want to discover the new features of Silverlight. Author Matthew MacDonald's expert advice guides you through creating rich media applications using Silverlight in the environment you're most productive in—no matter what the target platform. As you learn about the features that put Silverlight in direct competition with Adobe Flash, such as rich support for 2D and 3D drawing, animations, and media playback, you'll experience the plumbing of .NET and the design model of WPF through Silverlight—all of the same .NET technology that developers use to design next-generation Windows applications.

Pro Silverlight 5 in C# is a comprehensive tutorial, written from professional developer to professional developer.

Please note: the print version of this title is black & white; the eBook is full color.

What you’ll learn
  • To develop rich media applications using Silverlight across browsers and platforms
  • To create a project, set up a layout, and use controls
  • To handle both 2D and 3D drawing, animation, and media playback through Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)

So I picked this book rather than the VB book because of the color, not so much the code preference. There is no color in this book whatsoever! I've used other tech books and the ones with color is a welcome change - i was really looking foward to it, feel rather let down - its even listed on the cover as a selling point! Content is fine, have other books by MacDonald, always does a good job. Will be digging more into 3d and other new features of 5.
