Part VI: Appendices > Tutorials


Once you have gotten started with Expression Studio after reading this book, you can take some online tutorials on more specific subjects.

Microsoft Expression Virtual Labs

( The name of this site is a bit misleading: There are only four virtual labs, and they are all about Expression Web. However, the four labs are good starting points for working with CSS and ASP.NET 2.0.

( Well-known graphic designer Lynda Weinmann helped present Expression Web when the product was first introduced. Her Web site contains a variety of online tutorials on Expression Web, Design, and Blend. There are many programs represented, and this site can be very informative. To fully take advantage of this site, you need to become a paid subscriber.

Microsoft Expression Knowledge Center Tutorials

( This is Microsoft’s own tutorial page. There is a vast number of resources available here: training videos, tutorials, Webcasts, and guides. All Expression Studio products are included—as well as Expression Encoder, which isn’t officially part of the Expression Studio family.

Learn Expression Video Tutorials

( Austin Drees, the Marketing and Art Director for, has created a series of free video tutorials for Expression Web. The site also hosts community forums devoted to Studio components. One thing that’s notable is a tutorial on Microsoft Silverlight. There is also a video on Zam3D, a program for working with 3D programs that can be used with Expression Blend.


( This site sounds similar to the preceding one, but it’s not. It presents a series of tutorials on CSS, classes, IDs, and formatting Web page content.

Expression Blend and Design

( This site is formatted like a blog, but it contains more than random comments. Members of the Blend and Design development teams provide tutorials that explain how to perform key functions, such as working with data, implementing templates, and creating interactive buttons.
