Topic: Declarative based UI programming: WPF, Silverlight & Surface
XAML has become the de facto declarative language for UI development on the Microsoft platform spanning Windows, Web and the Microsoft Surface. This transformation to a single declarative language for all platforms has enabled Microsoft to deliver on the bold promise of a cross platform user experience programming model for the future. In this unique session we take a look at how knowledge of XAML and .NET languages like C# and VB.NET allow you to develop applications for Windows (WPF), the Web (Silverlight) and the Microsoft Surface using the same coding constructs and idioms. In this demo packed session we will take a look at how graphics, animations, data binding, styles and templates are commonly implemented on these platforms and how XAML makes all of this possible.
