Developing Rich Internet Applications Using Microsoft Silverlight 4 Training Course
This course covers intermediate and advanced topics required to develop professional Silverlight 4 applications that can be deployed to the Web, Windows desktops, and Windows Phone 7 devices. The course will include hands-on labs that comprise approximately 50% of the classroom time and enable the student to learn Silverlight 4 programming within a variety of real-world scenarios.
The students in Course 10554: Developing Rich Internet Appliications Using Microsoft Silverlight 4 should have experience with XAML (either through WPF or Silverlight), a limited amount of Silverlight development experience, and experience working in Visual Studio 2010. This audience is interested in learning to develop advanced Silverlight 4 applications using Visual Studio 2010. Course 10554 is intended for developers who have programming experience using either Visual Basic .NET or Visual C# and who understand the concepts of object-oriented programming. This course is designed for developers who are comfortable using Expression Blend and Visual Studio 2010.
Module 1: Introduction to Building Silverlight Business Applications
This module an overview of Silverlight for building business application and describes how to build out-of-browser applications.
Module 2: Building Data-Driven Applications
This module discusses various data access techniques in Silverlight, and focuses on how to use ADO.NET entity data models in Silverlight applications.
Module 3: Advanced Data Management
This module explains how to modify data using domain services, implement data binding, and format data for display.
Module 4: Implementing User Controls and Navigation
This module describes how you can create user controls that allow you to group various controls in a single unit and customize both the display and functionality to suit your needs. Depending on how generic you create your user controls, they can easily be reused across your Silverlight applications.
Module 5: Creating Advanced User Interfaces
This module explains how you can create your own presenter objects to contain other objects, and define collections and templates for sub-objects, all in a flexible way.
Module 6: Using Local Assets
This module discusses how you can add features that allows users to use local resources, e.g., print data from your solutions. Additionally, it explains how you can persist settings across sessions, and enable users to open and save files to the local computer’s file system.
Module 7: Implementing Advanced Media Techniques in Silverlight
This module explain how you can implement deep zoom and play media files.
Module 8: Developing Silverlight Media Framework Solutions
This module explains how you can use Silverlight Media Framework to implement many enhancements over the built-in media elements of Silverlight, and simplify your job of developing rich media-based solutions.
Module 9: Accessing Hardware in Silverlight Applications
This module focuses on how you can use Silverlight to develop solutions that interact with hardware devices, such as webcams, audio equipment, mouse wheels, and keyboards. Adding interaction with such hardware and implementing features such as video capture and image creation from video sources enables you to add a high degree of rich interactivity to your solutions.
Module 10: Globalization and Localization
This module explains how you can develop solutions that can be globalized to work across cultures, and localized to a specific culture.
Module 11: Implementing Network Communications
This module, describes some common techniques for providing configuration data to Silverlight applications, such as providing initiation parameters that identify external XML configuration files or services, and consume such external XML configuration files or services by using various approaches. Also it explains how to implement communication between Silverlight applications by using sockets and local TCP connections.
Module 12: Deploying Silverlight Applications
This module covers how to host a Silverlight application and thus make it available to end users, as well as which features you can make use of after your application has been deployed.
Module 13: Application Guidance
This module focuses on the MVVM design pattern and the Prism guidance.
Module 14: Windows Phone Development–First Look
This module explains the basics of Windows Phone Application Development.
