The Expression team has launched a new Community website where you can learn, share, and be inspired.
Four members of the Expression Web team are headed to MIX 2008 in Las Vegas, and would like to meet up with anyone who will also be there. Please comment on this post if you'd like to get together and chat with us...we'd love to hear from you.
Tyler Simpson, our Principal Test Manager, will be leading a session at MIX with Nishant Kothary titled "Microsoft Expression Web: From Comp, to CSS, to Code!". They'll be showing how they designed a WordPress blog template with Expression Web for Nishant's Rainy Pixels blog - http://www.rainypixels.com/ . Here's the session's description from the MIX 08 website:"Explore key features of Microsoft Expression Web through real-world scenario-based exercises focused around building a great blog template. The topics cover PHP support, Photoshop comp import workflow, CSS features, and more."
Visit the MIX 08 sessions page to get the location and time of this and other sessions:https://content.visitmix.com/public/sessions.aspx
If you're not going to MIX, you'll be glad to know that the Tyler and Nishant's session will be recorded and available on the MIX website after MIX. We'll blog about it once the recording is available.
Again, if you're going to MIX, let's get together!
The Expression family of products has new and greatly improved discussion forums:
The new forums have many new features including a tag cloud, user avatars, richer ux, and official forum moderators from each product team.
The previous discussion forums (http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.expression.webdesigner&cat=&lang=en&cr=US) will remain open and available while its threads are ported over to the new forums. But please use the NEW forums instead.
Anna Ullrich has launched her own blog, starting with a post on how to create a standards-based navigation menu using CSS in Expression Web.
