I've gotten a few requests from internal local sales teams, Sharepoint professionals and developers about how to implement Silverlight in Sharepoint.  I usually try to explain that since Sharepoint is essentially an ASP.NET application it is relatively simple to implement.  Of course, that usually doesn't help :-).  What helps is some documentation and samples that show how you would use Silverlight to enhance a Sharepoint experience.

As a part of the Software+Services Blueprints series, a new bundle has been made available to download to provide guidance and source code to help provide some information.  In the blueprint you'll get:

    • A simple “hello, world” sample showing Silverlight in a Web part.
    • A Silverlight slider control as a SharePoint custom field type.
    • A navigation control.
    • A Colleague Viewer that uses lookups in Active Directory by using Windows Communication Foundation.
    • A Silverlight picture viewer from a SharePoint picture library.
    • A visual how-to center, created in Silverlight and based on a SharePoint list, for viewing videos.

A pretty great resource for those wanting to discover implementation details as well as some ideas for Silverlight in Sharepoint!
