Silverlight Developer Guidance Map

Are you building applications with Silverlight? Make sure to take a look at the Silverlight Guidance Developer Map.

With the available collection of developer guidance available in the form of Code Samples, How Tos, Videos, and Training, it is a challenge to know what to look for and where to look for.
