With this tutorial we want to open a small series and invite authors to participate in the initiative. Next step will be the tutorials on Silverlight 4 and ASP.NET MVC, so send your links to articles or materials to msugvn[at]gmail.com or in private. Besides it would be nice to make a branded design for brochures, so designers are welcome to contribute as well.
