Welcome to Silverlight 5

  • Robert Lair


This chapter introduces Silverlight, a Microsoft cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in that allows you to create rich interactive (or Internet) applications (RIAs) for the Web. It begins with a brief look at the evolution of user interfaces, and then provides an overview of Silverlight. You’ll learn how Silverlight fits into RIA solutions, the benefits it brings to developers, and the tools involved in developing Silverlightenabled applications.
