Unwrapping Silverlight 2

Ahead of the first public Beta of Silverlight 2, Scott posts this overview and follows up with a series of tutorials that will get you up to speed with the breadth of features being introduced:

Part 1: Creating "Hello World" with Silverlight 2 and VS 2008
Part 2: Using Layout Management
Part 3: Using Networking to Retrieve Data and Populate a DataGrid
Part 4: Using Style Elements to Better Encapsulate Look and Feel
Part 5: Using the ListBox and DataBinding to Display List Data
Part 6: Using User Controls to Implement Master/Details Scenarios
Part 7: Using Templates to Customize Control Look and Feel
Part 8: Creating a Digg Desktop Version of our Application using WPF

This is just an hors d'oeuvre before the Beta is available for public download. Soon! Hope you love what we've cooked.

Update: Adam does a CliffsNotes take on Scott's posts.
