Definition and introduction to Silverlight

Silverlight is a phenomenal framework for developing rich applications for the web and mobile devices. It includes a cross-platform, cross browser version of the .NET Framework. While it excels at displaying high-definition video files, it is very versatile and can be used for a wide range of Internet applications including, computer games.

Silverlight applications are delivered to a browser through a markup language called XAML. For the most part, XAML is where you will define your UI elements as well as do your data binding and event handling. Your programmatic logic is separated in code-behind files that you can choose to write in either C# or VB.
