Our Silverlight Adventure

So, we finally took the plunge and started building out a new admin area of the site using Silverlight.

We’re tired of webforms and are using MVC on the front end, so we thought we’d improve the user experience by using Silverlight controls hosted in an MVC app for the Cms which is used by our editorial team.

I’ll document a few of the issues we ran in to starting out with Silverlight and how we have overcome them. They may not be the most ideal solutions, but the idea is to learn from our mistakes and improve.
