    Developer Designer collaboration with WPF ...


    I am doing a developer designer workflow talk tomorrow for an MSDN webcast..   Invite is here..

    As of today (the day before, shame), the deck is a work-in-progress ..  I have put a copy here.. 
    I believe there will be nuggets shared, and we could use some experienced attendees to stir up the discussion...  

    I guess my ugly visuals with no talking points is pretty useless,  but still if you have feedback [specially things I missed that you feel are critical] please share it my way ...   I have an hour for the talk so I could not go as long as I needed in a few areas; and I am assuming an audience that is just familiar with WPF..

    My current thinking of timeline is it will go like this:

    1. 10 mins intro, marketing koolaid, etc..  
    2. 15 mins inside Blend ...  walking the walk ...  
    3. 20 mins of my lesssons learned from many Early projects 
    4. 15 mins Q&A ...


    The one thing you can't read from the deck is that as I weigh in two approaces "assets" vs "integrator" ..  These are NOT contradicting or negating each other; they can be used in a complementary approach ..     

    hope to c u there, sorry for short notice..

    Two great talks .. One on data, one on 3D ..


    While I am on talks (last post)...  I saw two really good ones last week:

    David, Kurt and Jordan delivered a really nice WPF talk on 3D...  This is a "tone down" talk from their advanced WPF 3D talk..  I really liked it cause it nails the core points. It did not lose too much of the depth, but it is also approachable for a person just getting started in 3D. I particularly like their "FooBar" hint ... I had never thought of it in such an insightful manner; for me, it will make explaining the 3D OM much easier :)


    Bea had also a great WPF talk on data...  it was not only insightful, but the examples she used, specially the listbox w/ solar planet were a great showcase of WPF's template based approach to controls & data...
