Building the modern UIs that users demand can be tedious and difficult, whether they are built in XAML or HTML5\CSS3. Since the tooling provided for building these complex UIs is poor and unreliable, this forces developers/designers to hack the UI markup themselves. Blend for Visual Studio takes major strides to enable trusted UI design without the need to edit the markup manually. This talk will demonstrate the capabilities included in Blend for solving this problem.

You will learn:

  • How Blend makes XAML UI Design Easier
  • How Blend makes HTML5\CSS3 Design Easier
  • How Blend interacts with the Visual Studio Development Environment
