AS MICROSOFT DEVELOPED Silverlight versions 3 and 4, it enabled developers
to create compelling business applications that were distributed and run in
the browser with a rich, refreshing, and engaging experience. This technology
was a natural addition to the SharePoint developer’s toolbox, as so many
companies store business data within intranets and extranets on the Share-
Point platform. With the release of SharePoint 2010, Microsoft made it easier
to consume and integrate data stored within SharePoint into Silverlight
applications with the client object model and a new RESTful service....

This book is aimed at equipping you, the developer, to understand the technologies that
are available to allow you to rapidly build secure, quality web experiences. Note that I use
the term experiences and not applications or sites. That is because the user experience is
the heart of the future Web.
Coding on the client is fun. I started on the Commodore 64 in seventh grade in the
1980s; later moved to DOS with dBASE, QuickBasic, and C++; and eventually began Windows
programming using C++, Borland Delphi 1.0, PowerBuilder, Visual Basic 3-6, and
.NET. I like the ozone smell of making my CPU work for a living. I like being able to tap
into the power of the local machine. I want to be able to hear the individual bits moving
across the bus.
I like client application development, and I really like XAML. I like Silverlight, WPF,
and Windows 8 XAML. I even like working in the...
