Build Highly Usable, High-Performance Business Applications with Silverlight 5

 

Microsoft Silverlight MVP and Wintellect Consultant Jeremy Likness gives you all the hands-on guidance and proven  patterns and practices you need to build scalable, maintainable, and highly professional applications for multiple platforms  and browsers. In this first complete guide to designing Silverlight applications for commercial use, Likness focuses on  the advanced Silverlight features most directly related to solving real-world business problems and demonstrates how  these features fit together in production-quality applications.

 

Written from the ground up, this book covers every key area of enterprise Silverlight development. For each, Likness  introduces the opportunities and capabilities Silverlight provides, offers relevant case studies from actual projects,  presents complete C# code samples, and explains them in detail. Every chapter concludes with a summary highlighting  the specific information and techniques most important for developers to consider.

 

Coverage includes

•    Discovering why Silverlight is superior to HTML5/JavaScript for most line-of-business applications

•    Leveraging Silverlight 5’s powerful enhancements to performance, text, printing, usability, security, and programmability

•    Effectively applying Silverlight’s application cycle in enterprise applications

•    Using XAML to drive Silverlight’s visual interface

•    Quickly transforming raw data into visually appealing information

•    Using Silverlight’s innovative Visual State Manager and data binding to separate design, UI/UX experience,  and business logic

•    Simplifying development with the MVVM pattern

•    Using MEF to integrate modular code into highly extensible, maintainable, and testable Silverlight applications

•    Improving and automating testing with Silverlight Unit Testing Framework and third-party add-ons

•    Mastering each leading approach to navigation and implementing the best one for your application

•    Implementing the service layer, persistence, and state management

•    Building advanced “out-of-browser” applications

•    Integrating sophisticated line-of-business features into your solutions

•    Optimizing the performance of your Silverlight applications

 

This book will be invaluable for all experienced client developers who use Microsoft’s  technology stack and want to leverage Silverlight’s immense power; and for every Silverlight  developer seeking to improve existing line-of-business applications with the new Silverlight 5.

Synopsis:

While nearly one million developers now use Silverlight, most existing guidance remains simple and introductory. Enterprise developers need repeatable best practices and patterns to help them build line-of-business Silverlight solutions more quickly and effectively. This book delivers those practices and patterns, together with state-of-the-art Silverlight 5 code that demonstrates exactly how to use them. Two-time Microsoft Silverlight MVP and long-time Wintellect consultant Jeremy Likness draws on his unsurpassed experience building large-scale commercial applications with Silverlight. Likness guides readers step-by-step through building highly-scalable and modular Silverlight solutions that take full advantage of Enterprise Silverlight, Modular Silverlight, MVVM, and the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF). Throughout, Likness presents rich code examples in the context of real, production-quality Silverlight case study applications. His code and best practices solve a wide range of complex problems, including: *Transporting data more efficiently *Sharing behaviors between clients and servers more effectively and seamlessly *Creating modular extensions that load on demand *Debugging and profiling large-scale Silverlight systems more successfully. Code samples are written and tested with Silverlight 5 but many of the concepts are applicable to previous versions of Silverlight. Likness also provides a rich glossary and references for using Silverlight even more successfully
