PacktLib, Packt Publishing’s online digital library, is a resource that is accessible on demand from the cloud. The benefit of accessing Packt’s book on the PacktLib platform is that subscribers can use it to search for solutions to their problems across all books in their subscription, something that is difficult to do on print books and eBooks.

Written by experts, this ensures that readers will be equipped with the knowledge to perform data related tasks successfully in Microsoft Silverlight. This book is ideal for .NET developers who want to become competent in managing professional data-driven applications with Silverlight. Topics are presented chapter by chapter meaning that subscribers can read them in no particular order.
