The Silverlight Workshop is a soup-to-nuts breakdown of Silverlight for professional designers. This includes learning the ins and outs of XAML, hosting in the browser, the tools and using Silverlight on the server.

Who Should Attend?
No prior experience with Expression Design or Blend is necessary.   You also don't need to worry about having experience with XAML or WPF.  We do expect you have some Web design experience and understand the fundamentals of writing Javascript code.
We originally designed this course based on requirements from Microsoft and have delivered the training to a host of Microsoft clients and employees in multiple cities with rave reviews.
This course was created with designers as the target audience.  If you want to bring your pages to life with Silverlight or need to add Silverlight skills to your arsenal as an existing Flash developer, you'll love this class.
