Play Silverlight 4 for Desktop Developers by Ingo Rammer
Silverlight 4 has truly changed the game for business applications. In this session, Ingo shows you how you - as a developer of desktop business applications - can combine Silverlight with WCF RIA (Rich Internet Application) services to allow easy access to your data and business logic. You will learn how you can use these tools together with the Entity Framework to implement powerful "never-repeat-yourself" validation which is used on client and server side, and how RIA Services generally simplify client/server interactions. Ingo will also show you how the resulting Silverlight application can run outside of browser and can use your printer (and other hardware) to the maximum.
This session is presented by Ingo Rammer during Microsoft DevDays 2010 in The Hague in The Netherlands.
