Last week, I mentioned that we'll be working on bringing the new learning path design to the Accessibility and Audio/Video content. Unfortunately, this has ended up being more work that we expected so it will be delayed a little bit. On the plus side, the work has started and I'll proudly recommend the following technologies as the latest for Audio/Video:
These will be integrated into the learning path for Audio/Video that I'm currently working on refreshing.
This is a really short update, I have been hammered with meetings all day but before I close this one out, I would like to also propose a new blog post format, "Use this not this." The first example I can think of would be "Use Direct2D not GDI" and I would do things like highlight which is our latest offering and the scenarios where it'd best be applied. The articles would be focused to which technologies are new in Windows starting with Vista and I would try to get recommendations from product teams for the most relevant exmaples and code. Let me know what you think in the comments!
Also, once we get Learn: Windows Accessibility for Developers and Learn: Audio/Video Programming for Windows done, it's on to fixing all of the links in the top level pages so that the best developer center content is all you can browse to!
I think the "Use this, not this" format sounds great. I just learned about Media Foundation 2 weeks ago after discussing how hard DirectShow is to work with.
