End to End Hands on Lab – Blend 2.5 and Silverlight 2!


Our colleagues in Microsoft Switzerland have published a comprehensive hands-on-lab that explains in detail everything you need to get started with creating Silverlight 2 applications using Blend 2.5.

You can learn more and download the project files from here: Silverlight 2 Beta 1 Hands-on-Lab

They cover a lot of great topics including templating, isolated storage, and more. Beyond just talking about it, they provide actual projects for you to play with. They even have a Deep Zoom collections demo:

If you are looking to make the jump into Silverlight 2, then this lab is a good place to start!

Cheers!
Kirupa 🙂

    Went through the lab, there appear to be a couple small glitches with the step by step instructions.  For the most part everything works, I did have to tweek a couple things to get everything to work.

    Bart – if want to send me a very brief e-mail (kirupac.at.microsoft.com) on what those small glitches were, I can forward it to their team to fix.

    Thanks,

    I tried downloading this lab and the c# source zip file was password protected thus it didn’t work????

    Any thoughts?

  8. Kirupa (MS) says:

    Matt – what zip program are you using to unzip? I tried using the default unzipper found in Windows, and I did not receive a prompt to enter a password.

    Anand –  I’ve asked a colleague who is more knowledgeable about this than I am, so hopefully you’ll have a response soon 🙂
