Our very own Bob Familiar has been cruising the seas of Silverlight and has recently posted a very nice four-article series on using Silverlight 2.0 to develop RIAs (Rich Internet Applications):
This series of articles takes a look at the current state of RIA development leveraging Silverlight 2.0. The series will focus on the architecture of RIA’s, the use of XAML for resolution independent user interface layout and design, Windows Communication Foundation for Web Services, Visual Studio 2008 and Expression Blend for the design/development environment and Windows Server 2008/IIS7 as the deployment environment.
Bob’s not only a great technology guy, but an excellent musician as well. The series is based on his experiences developing his Sounds Familiar music site, showcasing his work.
I’ve come to know Bob’s musical work from our many hours in the car together for our Roadshows, taking turns listening to our Zunes. He has a lot of songs, you know. I’m thinking I’ll record my daughters practicing their piano so I have some custom compositions as well. It’s only fair.
