Silverlight 4 – Getting Started Plan

I have worked on a couple of small projects in Silverlight, but have never taken the opportunity to really understand the platform.  There is a new project at the office that will be using Silverlight to create interactive dashboards, so it is now time to dive into the deep end of the Silverlight pool. 

Here is my learning plan.

1. Watch Getting Started with Silverlight Development

Silverlight QuickStart Tutorials
Start with “Beginning QuickStarts” tutorials 1 – 6 and then move on to “Working with Data QuickStarts” tutorials 1 – 3

3. Silverlight 4 Hands On Labs

I find that my best learning comes from reviewing good code.  I am looking for some sample source code that illustrates best practices and a quality Silverlight architecture.  If anyone knows of a good example please let me know.
