Montreal .NET Community : Developing Silverlight/WPF for Blendability: Smooth Developer/Designer Workflow

This thursday Barry Garvin will present an interesting session at the Montreal .NET Community.

Here is his presentation description:

Microsoft has continued to make investments in both Expression Blend and Visual Studio to facilitate the workflow between the designer and developer roles. This is even more important if you as an individual fulfill both of these roles. However, having version control support in Blend and a design surface in Visual Studio 2010 isn't enough to ensure this back and forth workflow is smooth. In this session we'll examine techniques and patterns to ensure that your projects remain "Blendable" and "Testable" from start to finish. We'll review patterns such as model-view-view-model and attached behaviours to provide not only clean separation of concerns and testability, but also that elusive "Blendability" allowing you to take advantage of Blend's power throughout your project.

See you there.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
