French MVP Olivier Dewit is the author of a new book entitled, “Silverlight versions 2 et 3 – Développez des applications Internet riches”.
The book is aimed at .NET Web developers who want to make Rich Internet Applications using Silverlight. Fundamentals are presented in Silverlight 2 and 3 and a chapter is dedicated to the specific features of version 3.

Developers will learn the fundamentals of vector graphics and implementation of animations and transformations.
