In these series of posts I want to show how easy is to work with Visual Studio 2010, Silverlight 3 beta and the NET RIA Service.
Prerequisites and tutorials.
First of all we need to know what is NET RIA Service and how they can help us to write better business RIA applications.
NOTE: Unfortunately NET RIA will NOT work with the beta1 preview of Visual Studio 2010 so I recommend to use them into VS 2008 SP1.
Brad Adams and NET RIA Service overview has a very interesting post about the architecture of NET RIA Service.
Then, you must also watch the web cast at the MIX 2009. This will give a real touch of this technology that I am loving!
After all, you need now to work with the NET RIA service. I am going to write a series of posts about that, but you can also follow the tutorials over the web.
In order to develop with Silverlight 3 beta you need:
- Visual Studio 2008 SP1 or Visual Studio 2010 CTP
- NET RIA Services May 2009 preview
- Silverlight 3 runtime and toolkit
- Follow one of the numerous tutorial available
If you plan to work with Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2010, you can have a look also at my post on How to RDP into a Windows 7 virtual machine.
After that you will be able to follow my tutorials.
