XAML Slinger

New UI technologies increase user expectations, and developers need to ramp up better design sensibilities to help meet that challenge. Billy Hollis distills out the most important concepts and ideas for developers to learn and understand when they take on a more design oriented role. Design concepts covered include use of color and animation, progressive disclosure, prototyping processes, aesthetic-usability effect, feedback loops, recognition vs. recall, and several others. If you expect to design XAML-based user interfaces, or work with a professional designer on a project, this session is a great starting point.
