The Great Asynchronous Learning Experiment – Day 0

I am about to embark on the adventure of learning Silverlight  from scratch, putting myself into the shoes of a .NET developer who is coming to Silverlight for the first time, using the resources on

 I'd like to invite you to come with me, joining at any time, participating as much as you'd like, and taking breaks whenever you see fit.

 As I go, I will be using the resources that are here and keeping a public "diary" that notes my progress and also takes note of

  • What are the helpful resources that really worked to clear things up 
  • What resources are not here that I wish were
  • When was I confused about what to do next?
  • What resources are here but are misleading or wrong or need updating
  • What we should be doing to supplement the site with additional material

I would love for you to come along. No commitment necessary. You don't even  have to start or stop when I do. Just add comments to each "diary" post, saying what you found,  what helped, what confused you, what you wish was here, and anything else that is on your mind about the content of the site as you learn Silverlight.

This is also a great time to ask questions; if I don't know the answer, and often I won't, I'll ask the right folks and get an answer for you.
