Microsoft Silverlight 5, Part 1 of 2: Data, Binding, and Text

with Adam Barney

In this course, we will take an in-depth look at some of the most welcome changes to Silverlight. We will dive in to the many improvements to an already very powerful data binding model, looking at how these changes help us create applications using MVVM- the architecture that benefits the most from these improvements. Text layout and rendering is another area that has received a lot of much-needed attention, bringing new features such as pixel-snapped text, multi-column layout of text, and OpenType support.
