Sebastopol, CA--Silverlight and ASP.NET AJAX are giving Microsoft developers exciting new options when it comes to creating the rich web experiences users now expect. O'Reilly's got them covered in its latest releases.
Getting Started with Silverlight by Shawn Wildermuth
Silverlight is Microsoft's new cross-browser plug-in for delivering richer
web experiences to end-users, including video and animations. Silverlight
is generating buzz not only inside the traditional Microsoft developer
community, but also among designers and web developers who have long
relied on other tools such as Macromedia Flash to get their jobs done. In
this Short Cut, Siverlight-insider and Microsoft MVP Shawn Wildermuth
introduces you to Silverlight's key features and shows you how to tap into
its functionality to spice up your HTML and ASP.NET pages.

Programming ASP.NET AJAX, Rough Cuts Version, by Christian Wenz This book gives you a complete hands-on introduction to Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX 1.0, the new framework that offers many of the same benefits for Ajax development that ASP.NET provides for server-side development.
Loaded with code and examples that demonstrate key aspects of the
framework, this book is ideal not only for ASP.NET developers who want to
take their applications a step further with Ajax, but for any web
developers interested in ASP.NET AJAX, no matter what technology they use
currently. The Rough Cuts edition provides access to this manuscript as
it's being developed--either online or via PDF. Released previously as
Programming Atlas to cover the beta version of the Microsoft framework,
this edition is fully up-to-date and expanded for the official 1.0 release
of ASP.NET AJAX.
