Silverlight 4 in Action is a fast-paced, comprehensive tutorial that guides the reader from creating "Hello World" to coding production-quality, data-driven rich internet applications with graphics, audio, and video content. Written for a developer who already knows how to code in C#, this fluff-free book covers the basics quickly and dives into the heart of Silverlight development using XAML (a markup language for creating user interface elements) and Visual Studio 2010. You'll learn not only how to accomplish tasks, but how the underlying runtime works.

In addition to the fundamentals, the book covers the new features in Silverlight like pixel shaders, webcam and microphone, and raw media, as well as WCF RIA Services and patterns like MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel). It explains developing offline and "out-of-browser" applications, managing video and audio, handling validation, navigation and deep-linking, and how each Silverlight feature fits into the overall Silverlight ecosystem.

From the Author:

When I set out to write this edition, I wanted to create the definitive book on Silverlight for developers. While I spent many sleepless nights to put this together (the more amusing bits are the 4am paragraphs when the geek humor really comes out), it was a labor of love about a product I enjoy using for a community I respect.

I wrote this for both the accomplished developer who is new to Silverlight, and the Silverlight developer who wants to better understand the inner workings of this platform. If you're new to Silverlight, you'll find this book a good choice for getting up to speed. Like great video games where you can go back and replay with a different character for an enhanced experience, you'll find this book to be full of "Ah-hah" moments once you've written a few Silverlight projects.

The full set of source code is downloadable from Manning's site.

Achievement Unlocked: Awesome Silverlight Developer.
