Microsoft in alliance with the New York Times released a new Silverlight Kit for the New York Times APIs, designed to allow developers to easily take advantage of the services offered for free by the news outlet as REST services via the NY Times Developer Network. “Since Silverlight works very well with REST services, we wanted to make it easy for designers and developers to use these services in their applications. To do this we are releasing with the New York Times a New York Times Silverlight Kit which includes CLR objects and Value Converter to enable designers and developers to take advantage of these services in their applications,” revealed Michael S. Scherotter. To get an idea of what can be built with the kit, you can take a look at the Artist Explorer and Demo Site.
