Today my latest article on Silverlight 2 was posted on Simple-Talk . The article explains the foundations of data binding in Silverlight 2 including the importance of Dependency Properties and the DataContext. I intend on following this up with future articles on the topic, too.
This article contains a small excerpt from a very early chapter in my upcoming book Data Access with Silverlight 2, by O’Reilly. I’ll be posting small nuggets on my blog and through articles along the way to give everyone an idea of what’s inside the book. The book is due out late this year, probably December 2008. I’d like to get it out earlier, but there is a lot to write about still that may change in the betas, so its a tough balance.
