Silverlight Blueprint for SharePoint

SharePoint does deliver, in my opinion, a fantastic platform for web application development.  Sure, it’s “version 1.0” but wow what a 1.0 it is! It’s awesome on the ‘back end,’ but we’ve lacked a way to create rich, interactive user experiences. That now changes, with the release of the Silverlight Blueprint for SharePoint.  The blueprint includes sample applications combining SharePoint and Silverlight, detailed guidance and best practices from Microsoft (claims Microsoft—I’ll await feedback from developers to confirm or modify that claim), and new business data visualizations and interactivity.  You can download the Silverlight Blueprint for SharePoint at
