For my fellow Halo addicts our there... Check out the short films by Neil Blomkamp here. He has done an amazing job of bringing it to life. Gives me hope for the movie, I was blown away! Yes there are Warthogs, Pelican Dropships and even Covenant Brutes. Watch closely and you can see the Brutes firing off the Needle Gun!
ComponentOne has some great examples showing off what a nextgen app can look like in the enterprise. These demos use One-Click deployment, take advantage of WPF for visual effects, show off some AJAX enabled controls, and even have Office 2007 Navigation components! Everything an Enterprise Developer needs!
Check out the demos here.
The Studio Live demo has some excellent Ribbon controls and also has a Scheduling Component. A must for anyone who is looking at integrating their own Outlook style scheduling app!
There is also direct link to their Studio Live example here on WindowsClient.Net. For those not familiar with WindowsClient.net, it is THE PLACE to go for WPF and Desktop application development on Windows. There are tutorials, demos, and code samples available for download today. Check it out!
