The Microsoft Silverlight platform provides a comprehensive framework for consolidating data sources and services as well as building reusable, expressive, and interactive components for the Web. Microsoft Expression Blend enhances Silverlight development by providing an interactive, aesthetic design surface for styling Silverlight content. The ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight builds on standard Silverlight platform patterns and tools. This session will discuss best practices for integrating and enhancing the use of ArcGIS Silverlight components with respect to data binding, control templates, and XAML/code-behind patterns.

Prerequisites: Intermediate level experience with Microsoft Silverlight, .NET, and Expression Blend
