Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSensesamsunglfd.com/solution/sur40.do
Here at Microsoft Surface we've been actively engaged with our Community of customers and nearly 180 Microsoft Surface Partners in 11 countries. And in response to the feedback we received, we developed Service Pack 1 to allow for faster and easier development of innovative, natural experiences on the Microsoft Surface platform. The SDK supports development on any .NET framework and is optimized for WPF and XNA.
As we announced last week, we'll be sharing all the good stuff about the Microsoft Surface Service Pack 1 at Microsoft TechEd 2009 today. In their session, Robert and Doug will be going through many of the new features with real code so you can see what it's like to actually develop a Microsoft Surface application. Their presentation at PDC '08 had excellent reviews, so.. If you're at TechEd today, make sure to get to Session DTL337 from 2:45-4pm in room 408B.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the Service Pack 1 feature highlights..
New platform capabilities
Improved User Interface
Contact Visualizations Library Control Menu Control
