Data templates and controls templates allow user interfaces in XAML unlike anything available in most other technologies. However, most XAML applications look like colorized versions of older applications, with too many data grids and lists with no feedback. This session challenges you to do better. Both technical and design techniques are discussed for creation list interfaces that make the user more productive and effective.
