Migrate Silverlight Apps to Wijmo Core HTML5/JavaScript

When Microsoft decided to stop investing in Silverlight, many developers were faced with a tough decision. How could they migrate to modern web platforms and not throw away all the benefits of MVVM and the knowledge they gained by using Silverlight? 

Wijmo Core is a true HTML5 solution, based on JavaScript and CSS. It includes all of the controls commonly used in business apps, as well as JavaScript implementations of the ICollectionView interface and a concrete CollectionView class.
