Client-Side Development with Silverlight
One particularly nice feature of SharePoint Online is the capability to develop and deploy Silverlight client applications within it. Silverlight allows you to create rich Internet applications (RIAs) within SharePoint and can significantly enhance the user experience of your site. You can also access and work with SharePoint data within your Silverlight application by using the SharePoint client object model or Representational State Transfer (REST) services (see Chapter 9). Among other benefits, using Silverlight can improve the performance of your site because Silverlight code runs on the client rather than on the server.
