XAML Slinger

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. You’ll first learn the basic technologies needed for templating, and then see how to use Expression Blend to create data and control templates that open up completely new ways to provide the user with information and feedback.

Visual Studio 11: Turning Ideas into Software

The world of software today is defined by the word “Experience”. You can see it in the way people have adopted new experiences for devices of different form factors, you can see it in how people want to experience their information and you can see it in the context of how people interact to build software solutions. Regardless of the solution you’re building, the fundamental need for a compelling experience exists. In Visual Studio 11, Microsoft aims to ensure that developers have all the tooling to create compelling user experiences, an IDE that sets a new bar for the developer experience and a family of products dramatically improves the team experience for everyone.
