Silverlight Version 3


With the release of version 3, Silverlight has hit the maturity sweet spot with more clients realising the benefits of a runtime specifically designed for RIA and media based application.
 
To help Universities, Media Academies and Colleges understanding the technology and teaching it to their students, and in collaboration with Skillset and the Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication, Microsoft developed a ready to teach module that covers all the main aspects of the technology and the associated tools.

We are delighted to launch this module in the UK with two events in which we will talk about the content, the technology and provide you with some more information on how we believe learning it will be beneficial for your students.

During the day, you will have the opportunity to understand the course content and get an overview of the technology and especially understand the benefit of integrated developer/designer workflow, Deep Zoom & Smooth Streaming HD video. You will also experience working with the latest Expression Blend 3 tools – supporting you from sketch through to delivery.

1.     Introduction Silverlight
2.     Prototyping your Silverlight Project in SketchFlow
3.     Building asserts for your Silverlight project
4.     Naming and arranging elements in Expression Blend
