To develop and deploy this example, you need a SharePoint Online account with at least one site collection. You must have “full control” or higher permissions on the site collection used for this example.
You also need Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. SharePoint Designer 2007 is free, and you can download a free trial of Visual Studio 2008:
Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007

Microsoft Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008
