Creating a rich Web experience involves diving into some unique challenges. How do you work with data from various sources? How do you take advantage of modern media elements? What can you do to integrate all these things into an application that works? Microsoft Silverlight provides a powerful platform for building the next generation of rich interactive applications on the Internet. In this webcast, we look at the programming model and tools that developers and designers can leverage to build these true next-generation experiences for consumers and business, and we demonstrate how to build a rich interactive application (RIA) using Silverlight and Microsoft .NET. We explore how to use Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft Expression Blend to create applications and compelling UI using XAML markup, code, controls, and file I/O. We also discuss networking, how to retrieve data from a Web service, and various other aspects of building Silverlight applications.

BenkoTips Live and On Demand brings events to you. This webcast series is dedicated to helping developers explore the possible. Join us each week as we take a look at what is new for developers, and see how to take advantage of the tools that developers use. From Microsoft Silverlight to Windows SharePoint Services, from the Microsoft .NET Framework to Microsoft Visual Studio, from Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 to membership, we explore it all.
