Silverlight Videos Map

Silverlight Videos Map

  • Comments 0

Here is a simple map of the Silverlight videos available from www.Silverlight.net.

While making our map, I was surprised to see how many Silverlight videos there are, compared to code samples or How Tos.  That said, if you need a Silverlight video, I think you’re in luck.  Currently this is a flat list.  There are many possible improvements.  For example, now it should be easy to bubble up the favorite videos.  It’s also possible to add a “Getting Started” section at the top and group all the videos related to getting started.

Categories
The categories are simply groups based on the existing videos mapped to common areas of concern.  We used the following categories to chunk up the video collection into common tasks and topics:

  • Animations
  • Controls
  • Data Access
  • Data Binding
  • Data Validation
  • Deep Zoom
  • Deployment
  • Events and Delegates
  • General
  • Graphics and 3-D
  • HTML Bridge
  • Layout, Input, and Printing Security
  • Networking and Communication
  • Performance
  • Styles and Templates
  • Text and Rich Text
  • User Controls
  • Video and Audio
  • WCF RIA Services
  • XAML
