Review of Microsoft Expression Blend 4 Unleashed

By HTMLGoodies Staff

The recently released book, Microsoft Expression Blend 4 Unleashed, starts out with an introduction that discusses the future of WPF and Silverlight, which is apt due to Microsoft's recent focus on HTML5 and JavaScript as the development tools of choice for Windows 8 apps.

The book delves into customization of the Expression Blend interface, and then moves on to an introduction which shows how to effectively use Expression Blend to work with a button. Another chapter looks at the standard user interface (UI) components, and then it moves on to using layout panels to organize components more effectively.

This book is not geared towards experienced WPF and Silverlight developers, as it doesn't delve too deepy into most topics, nor does it focus much on actual coding. That said, the book is definitely more technical than other, similar books on Expression Blend, and is a good choice for the intermediate WPF and Silverlight developer.
