    RadScheduler for Silverlight learning series, part 1: Getting started with RIA Services

    One of the newest (and arguably greatest) controls to be added to the RadControls for Silverlight suite recently has been RadScheduler.  With it, you can take care of everything from scheduling your day to planning what track you want to attend at events.  This versatile control allows you a lot of freedom to customize how you interact with it and just what you can do with appointments, which is what this series is going to be all about.  I won't spoil the future installments just yet (although they'll include using RadDragAndDrop in RadScheduler, albeit in a different way than this...

    Working with WCF Web Services in Silverlight, a headache/solution approach

    So if you’re like me, you’re on board with Silverlight and looking to get the most out of your RIA development.  I’ve taken all the advice offered for creating Silverlight apps with WCF services- this video by Tim Heuer has been indispensable, but now we can create a Silverlight Enabled WCF service to avoid the modifications in web.config. When working on an application recently, I was somewhat confused by the error I received after deploying to my local friendly IIS server on the network: HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error Date: Wed, 11 Mar 2009 20:37:29 GMT Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0 X-Powered-By: ASP.NET X-AspNet-Version: 2.0.50727 Cache-Control: private Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 Content-Length: 734   Content-Length:...
