A Silverlight Design Day event is an opportunity for Designers and UI Developers to learn about Silverlight through the Expression Blend tool.
The first of half the day will cover foundational topics including setting up your workspace, creating and importing assets, animation and skinning controls. Additionally, we will cover publishing your project and a new empowering feature called Behaviors, which allow you to add interactivity by simply dragging and dropping elements.
The second half of the day, we will leave some time for proctor-led labs. Take advantage of this time to setup the tools on your own laptop or walkthrough step-by-step tutorials on the lab machines at the facility.
