In an attempt to close the loop on getting data into Silverlight, we’ve added a couple of new Quickstarts.
The first, Getting Data into Silverlight, provides some guidance about how you should store and access data from your Silverlight applications, and acts as an orientation topic for the other Silverlight Quickstarts, with some links into content on MSDN as well. The second Quickstart, REST Services, describes a REST service and shows how to retrieve data from a third-party service using the WebClient class. This Quickstart contains a running example that hits the Bing search service.
Make sure and check out these Quickstarts and give us your feedback!
