In part 2 of our series on building a Twitter application with Microsoft Silverlight, we get very hands on and dig in to see Silverlight in action. First, we explain how you can display table data in a few different ways, including a traditional grid view and more visually appealing views, such as a chart or a graph. Next we take a look at behaviors. Behaviors are an exciting new feature in Silverlight 3 and Microsoft Expression Blend that make is possible for you to separate more code from your view, making your code more reusable and easier to maintain. Another new feature in Silverlight 3 is the ability to run your application outside of the browser and to launch it, even if you are not connected to the Internet. Join us to see how you can take your Twitter application out of the browser. Silverlight has always been exceptionally strong in the area of video playback and Silverlight 3 raises the bar again--we take a quick look at Microsoft Expression Encoder and explain how it can help to create video for Silverlight playback, including support for Internet Information Services (IIS) Smooth Streaming which is ideal for streaming of high-definition video over the Web.
