  • Blog Post: Application Skinning in WPF and Silverlight

    Over the past two years we’ve seen some incredible applications built on WPF and Silverlight.

  • Blog Post: Clean Prototyping with Compositions

    By now you’ve hopefully seen SketchFlow and how it can help you conceptualize your projects before turning them into reality.

  • Blog Post: The Role of Sketching in Software Development

    It only been since 2006 that we seriously started to drive WPF adoption, and Silverlight 2 hit the web just a scant 11 months ago.

  • Blog Post: Houston TechFest Tomorrow

    It’s a rare occasion that I get out of bed before 10 AM on a Saturday. Even less common is that I’m doing it to present. But the good news is I’m really looking forward to my sessions tomorrow at Houston TechFest . I hope to meet cool people that have interesting questions. Though maybe a few less questions...

    So I’m up here in Redmond at TechReady. It’s a super secret event that we get to go to once a year and learn about the cool things the product groups have been up to. This year I'm learning about Prism , which is a cool lightweight framework for building composite applications in WPF. No...
