This session looks at the importance of right-brained thinking in UI design and suggest strategies for left-brain-tending developers to learn to tap into right-brain skills. It’s a truism in our industry that many developers just can’t design user interfaces. Why not? Because most developers are classic left-brain thinkers. They are skilled at procedural logic and deductive logic, and they hone their left-brain capabilities every day by writing code. However, user interface design, particularly in the era of advanced UI technologies such as Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft Silverlight, requires …
In this episode we are going to take a look at how we can use the take our in-browser Silverlight application and allow it to run Out of Browser (OOB). We will take a look at how we can let Silverlight perform the lifting as well as how we can provide coding to create the OOB application.
Learn how to use the Microsoft Visual Basic/C# DLR integration to test a statically-typed application with IronRuby. See how to develop a Silverlight application end-to-end with IronRuby, and how programming with dynamic languages helps improve the dev experience.
Learn how to encapsulate structure, animation, and logic inside custom controls that handle theming, layout, validation, and data binding. Using Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft Expression Blend, explore advanced design, coding, debugging, and testing techniques for building components that work interchangeably in Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
Come see how to build a continuum of client applications including HTML, AJAX, ASP.NET, Microsoft Silverlight, and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) that all consume the same Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service. Learn how to reuse as much code as possible, how to optimize the development process, and how to address key logistical issues like external servers and cross domain communication.
Learn how to keep your customers, management, and quality assurance team happy by building testable Silverlight applications. Explore how the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) and Inversion of Control principles can be used with .Net RIA Services to create Silverlight applications with high testability across multiple tiers. Hear guidance from the Silverlight team on how to best use the available testing tools and technologies to take full advantage of your improved application designs to boost quality.
Scott Guthrie provides an overview of his keynote at PDC 2009. Learn about Silverlight 4 new features. Get an inside developer perspective on Silverlight 4.
Dive into advances in XAML happening in future versions of .NET, Silverlight, Microsoft Visual Studio, and Microsoft Expresssion Blend. Hear about XAML parsers, markup compilers, analysis, transformations, localization, and tools. Dig even deeper into performance optimizations possible in .NET, and explore possibilities with a XAML DOM and DLR based scripting.
Learn how to build n-tier Rich Internet Applications (RIA) on Silverlight by tapping the power of .NET RIA Services. Walk you through an example of building an application from scratch using the pattern run-time components and tools provided by .NET RIA Services. See how it helps you write application logic to expose data and operations in a carefully controlled fashion using tools integrated into Visual Studio with support for validation, authentication, authorization and handling units of work.
