Reminder: I will be talking in front of the .NET Managed User Group of Switzerland about the collaboration between graphics designers and developers with WPF. All the talk’s details can be found here.
With the release of the Windows Presentation Foundation UI framework in November 2006, a new collaboration is made possible between graphics designers and software developers. Designers are now creating source code (XAML) instead of Photoshop mockups. On the other hand, developers must learn to delegate part of their UI prerogatives to the designers. This presentation will underline the new workflows, introduce the new roles, and with the help of live demos, show how a designer, a developer and an integrator can collaborate to create new lines of applications.
The talk is ready, I have a few slides and a (I hope) nice demo starting with Expression Design through Expression Blend and Visual Studio, showing how to build a skinnable WPF application from scratch. If you’re interested, register here!
Note pour les Romands: There are good chances that I will give the same talk in Geneva later this year. I’ll post details here when I know more.
