    September 14, 2009 Share
    If you missed the buzz, the Telerik team plans to distribute a beta release introducing new controls that will be officially included in the Q3 2009 release scheduled for November 2009. For those of you that didn’t have the opportunity to get familiar with what the new CoverFlow offers, take a look at my previous blog post here.   One of the new pieces that will be part of the pack is the new CoverFlow control.

    Breaking the ice: RIA Services and Silverlight 3

    Implementing Line of Business applications has never been easier before. RIA services together with the rich presentation layer in Silverlight provide a powerful foundation for building n-tier application that will do the heavy lifting of your data layer. RIA Services relies on the ADO.NET Entity Framework to create an entity data model of your relational database and interpret the entities independently of their data store representation. In this way you can use the power of LINQ to Entities to implement query logic against the entities without using t-sql, and rely on the entity relationship to retrieve information for any relationship between...
