Silverlight 2.0 is going to change the web. It’s a downloadable runtime that lets us write rich client applications. This week, we answer 2 fundamental questions about Silverlight:

  • What is Silverlight?
  • How does one get started with Silverlight?

If you want to be ready for what’s coming next in web development, give a listen. Our goal is to have a compact and informative audio podcast. Please leave any feedback you might have.
