The project itself is comprised of a complete reference application and an extensive set of documentation describing how the app works and the process behind the design decisions that the team made along the way. Think of it as the NerdDinner sample (and accompanying book chatper), but focused almost entirely on client-side development rather than the server-side MVC component.
Have a look at the following locations to learn more about the project, download the sample application, and read the accompanying documentation:
- Project Silk download
- Project Silk Home Page on MSDN
- Project Silk Community on CodePlex
- Project Silk Road Map
Or, if you don’t want to build the sample project yourself just to see how the Mileage Stats application works, you might prefer this demo of it in action:
