Summary

In this chapter, we have assimilated the fundamentals of Silverlight architecture, installed the necessary tools, implemented the classic 'Hello World' project, and learned some basic concepts related to XAML.

The main points to be remembered are as follows:

  • Silverlight provides us with a very powerful development framework
  • Silverlight allows us to develop with .NET client-side coding
  • Even though we can lay out windows via drag-and-drop, it is crucial to know the basics of XAML

In the next chapter, we will begin with some concepts concerning management applications. Similarly, we will learn how to add windows and dialogs, as well as how to implement navigation between those windows.
