While taking a look at the new Ajax library Microsoft put online I noticed at the bottom of a certain page a link to an interesting whitepaper: Building high performance websites. It’s an interesting read by James Senior and Dan Wahlin.

These are the main topics being discussed:

The Microsoft Ajax Content Delivery Network (CDN)
Loading ASP.NET Ajax Scripts
Loading jQuery Scripts
The ASP.NET Ajax Library Script Loader
Using the ASP.NET Ajax Script LoaderLoading Custom
Script Combining 
Using the Script Loader when Debugging 
Using the Script Loader's Lazy Loading Feature to increase performance 
JavaScript Application Performance Tools 
The Download Time Optimizer (Doloto) 
Microsoft Ajax Minifier
Internet Explorer JavaScript Profiler 
Internet Information Server 7 Compression and Caching Options

Since WPF and especially Silverlight, since version 3 recently was released, have similarities it’s nice to have an overview of what both technologies have to offer and where Silverlight’s left out on certain things. I found such an overview on Codeplex: http://wpfslguidance.codeplex.com/.

Taken from the project description:

WPF and Silverlight are both XAML based platforms but there are some important functionality and implementation differences between the two. This project contains content illustrating these differences and the best practices for developing against these platforms.
Content posted to this project includes a whitepaper detailing what is similar and different between the two platforms as well as how to code against both platforms getting as much code reuse as possible.

The Silverlight forums, where I'll also be playing a moderation role, just went live. Go check them out! Of course there's not only the forums but also a getting started part, a learn section where already several videos are available. Whitepapers and quickstarts are also available.
