About Silverlight Books.net

 

Introduction

Microsoft Silverlight is a fantastic new technology that enables designers and developers to create powerful,
visually stunning, Rich Internet Applications using the Microsoft .NET framework, Visual Studio and Microsoft Expression Blend.

Silverlight Books.net was created in order to assist developers in choosing the right books on Microsoft Silverlight, .NET Framework and related web-development technologies.

Developers will find that the “Silverlight” technology has very closely related topics such as the Microsoft .NET Framework, C#, Javascript, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Multimedia and Video Streaming, .NET Data-access techniques (LINQ, ADO.NET, XML, etc..), Security as well as Animation, Graphics and General Application Design practices. For this reason we’ve showcased additional categories with book selections on these topics.

Our website operates in association with Amazon.com and we are actually a live interface to it’s widest selection of books.

The goal of our website is to make an easier and more convenient access to the book titles available on Amazon.com,
while the main focus is on Microsoft Silverlight technology.


Special Features

We also provide listings that are not directly available on Amazon.com, such as books with CD/DVD, book selection by publisher (Ms-Press, Manning, O’Reilly, Wrox..), preview of future book releases, customer reviews (that by default are displayed as the most-helpful ones), most reviewed books with the overall ratings right there and “editor’s picks”.

“New book releases” and the “Best-selling books” sections are also a handy feature.
Being updated in real time as soon as the data has changed, it’s reflecting the current state of the market.

Our search engine is a bit different in a sense that it searches only within the collection of books that is available on Silverlight Books.net and the search is made on book titles, descriptions, books table of contents and indexes.
We’ve gathered this information across the web and fed our search engine with these (missing) parts.


Shopping Experience

Finally, Silverlight Books.net provides a convenient shopping-cart experience with the same selection of “New” and “Used” book offers and discounts that are available on Amazon.com in real-time.

Our visitors may use the shopping cart to form their selection and once ready to checkout,
the order and delivery will be processed by Amazon.com.
