Developer Challenges this episode solves...

How can you quickly display  and navigate a large, detailed image or a panorama of images on the web, and not be extremely slow to view?

What can you use to build a website that supports ASP.NET, Deep Zoom Composer images, AJAX, and Silverlight videos? … and do it quickly?

Do you wish you could find that perfect piece of code that you know you’ve written before?

You know how to write a query in SQL but how do you do it in LINQ? What tools are there to help you understand LINQ and what it is doing behind the scenes?

You have the source art from your design group, but how do you convert that into WPF or Silverlight?

You need to create a website for your group, and you would like to have a solid codebase as a starting point and get your feet wet in a real world Silverlight application.
