.toolbox is a really fun environment to learn basic design concepts as well as the fundamentals of creating Silverlight applications using Expression Studio. Today, I finished both the tracks (i.e. principles and scenarios) and achieved all 15 badges. The high quality tutorials and evaluations, and a very nice theme make it really enjoyable.

Microsoft has developed an amazing e-learning website called .toolbox for creating Silverlight applications using Expression Studio. The site focuses on design aspects rather than development. Being a developer, I am always intrigued by design tools like Flash, Blend and Photoshop and want to improve my design skills. So I have started going through the tutorials on .toolbox, they are very high quality and fun to follow.
I finished the introductory lecture on design fundamentals by Robby Ingebretsen. Following are my notes in a mind map format.
