Don't lose site of whats important, Interactivity and Experience
by Jose Fajardo
Patterns, Frameworks, MVVM, Prism, MEF, these are all great aides to helping us deliver a RIA solutions, BUT what they all lack is a designers perspective. Experience has shown me that the majority of a project is spent in xaml and creating interactivity through animations and styling. The view model is lean and clean BUT the view layer through evolutions of the WPF/Silverlight technology has gotten much heavier and more complex. I want to walk through with you the new features in SL and Blend from the perspective of bring order to the chaos in our view layer, and in so doing helping extend our frameworks to be relevant for designers.
