See more: Silverlight

I am thinking about starting a little project on the side as a hobby. Going to do a Silverlight web application with a SQL DB as the backend. Will probably have a web service of some sort to handle the transfer of data. What would be the best type of service to use? Also, any other good technologies I can use that would help me in my project.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions made.

I would HIGHLY recommend NOT using Silverlight. Silverlight is being phased out by Microsoft.

However, to answer your question WCF services are really easy to create, and to tie to a Silverlight (and other) applications. WCF is a Microsoft technology and is pretty powerful. It also have the advantage of being .NET which you'll be working with if you decide Silverlight.
