Just in case you missed it, Tim Heuer has announced that Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio 2010, WCF RIA Services and 3 new SL themes have been released today. This is an exciting news for Silverlight aficionados who have been waiting for the RTM version of SL4 Tools since the last RC who are itching to put their hands on this new set of goodies.
If you want to learn more about SL, the best place to start is to go to Silverlight.net and checkout the Getting Started section. I would also suggest you follow Tim’s blog and subscribe to his updates and also as follow Silverlight Cream for the latest stream of info from SL developers.
If you are looking for Silverlight books for beginners my suggestion would be to get Laurent’s book (a SL4 edition will come out in September) and start from there. You should also checkout Jeff Pairies mind boggling book about Silverlight animation and also John Papa’s classic SL book that talks about data-driven services with Silverlight. Although some of these books are 1-2 versions behind I still believe that there are a lot of value in them that you can still apply with your Silverlight 4 projects.
I’ve just downloaded the package via the WPI
and I can’t tell you how much excited I am to see SL4T-4-VS2010 RTMed.
This will surely be a fun week.
Nice, time to rock this ship!
