Silverlight 4 Courseware Using Visual Basic and C#

July 8, 2010. The Visual Basic version of Object Innovations' course on Microsoft's Silverlight 4 is now available:

This course is entirely parallel to the C# version of the course, which has received a minor update: Both courses are current to Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0.

Silverlight is a rapidly evolving client-side web technology from Microsoft. It enables the implementation of visually stunning web applications that depend only on a small, easy-to-install plug-in that works in browsers for both Windows and Macintosh. Silverlight provides a cross-platform and cross-browser implementation of the .NET Framework. Silverlight applications can be implemented in .NET languages such as C# and Visual Basic as well as in JavaScript. Silverlight 4 offers features to facilitate creation of line-of-business applications as well as provide an attractive interface for websites.

The courses introduce Silverlight for C# and Visual Basic programmers and provide a thorough survey of Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), which is also the foundation of Windows Presentation Framework (WPF). They covers Silverlight's graphics programming model, which supports the display of both vector graphics and images, as well as animations and multimedia. There are many example programs and labs.

The coursesware ccontains extensive material on networking, data controls and data binding, and accessing databases and XML files. It utilizes many important new technologies from Microsoft, including Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), REST-based Web services, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), the Entity Data Model (EDM), WCF Data Services, and the Open Data Protocol (OData).

The last chapter covers additional topics, such as the HTML Bridge, out-of-browser applications, the use of elevated trust, printing, and clipboard access. An appendix covers transforms in Silverlight, which can be used to achieve many striking visual effects.

Shipments of the new and revised courseware begin immediately.
