SharePoint 2010 Development with Silverlight
With SharePoint 2010, developers can create richer, more compelling, and more efficient user interfaces than ever before. This book teaches experienced ASP.NET developers how to build them with Silverlight 5 – the easiest, cleanest way to get the job done. Utilizing fully explained code listings, two Microsoft insiders teach everything developers they need to know. They teach key concepts through the creation of useful working solutions, and present code that teaches superior design as well as efficient programming. You can start from the beginning if you’re new to both SharePoint and Silverlight, or skip the first few chapters if you’re already familiar with developing for either or both of them. After explaining the tight integration between SharePoint 2010 and Silverlight 5, the authors show how to use Silverlight to overcome key limitations of “sandboxing”; design more secure, scalable SharePoint solutions; and choose the right approaches to accessing data from Silverlight.
Developers increasingly want to build rich applications that run in the SharePoint 2010 browser user interface while offering a far more compelling and engaging experience than conventional web pages. One proven technology gives them all the tools and resources they need to achieve these goals: Silverlight®. Using Silverlight and SharePoint together, developers can create state-of-the-art applications that utilize Silverlight’s outstanding user experience, and fully leverage the vast collections of business data already stored in corporate SharePoint deployments. In SharePoint 2010 Development with Silverlight, two SharePoint gurus collaborate to teach all the concepts and techniques needed to create robust Silverlight solutions for delivery through SharePoint 2010, and present fully documented code that demonstrates superior design and programming.
