@CodeNaked: It looks like that Boolean converter isn't available in Silverlight.

comment Providing work experience on my resume
You'll be better off talking to your schools career counselor. That said, I prefer seeing resumes in reverse chronological order. Being a TA for Datastuctures isn't that important, imo (I was a TA for that class as well). The fact that you have an internship is way more important. It sounds like you are coming in as a new-grad hire, thus coursework in datastructures etc is more important than language specific skills. You will be expected to learn languages on the job. Emphasize that in your resume, and good luck.
