Managing Data and Media in Silverlight 4: A Mashup of Chapters from Packt's Bestselling Silverlight Books

Buy
A Packt Compendium is a book formed by drawing existing content from several related Packt titles. In other words, it is a mashup of published Packt content – Professional Expertise Distilled in the true sense. Such a compendium of Packt's content allows you to learn from each of the chapters' unique styles and Packt does its best to compile the chapters without breaking the narrative flow for the reader.

Please note that the chapters in this compendium were originally written and intended as a part of various separate Packt titles, so you might find that the information included in this instance is more akin to that of a standalone chapter, rather than creating step-by-step, continuous flowing prose. We are sure that you will find this medley a useful and valuable resource with which you can benefit from a range of Packt books—and their authors' expertise!
