Designers create a vision, and this vision becomes an application. With some technologies, the transition from the vision to the UI can be a painful and frustrating exercise. With XAML however, we have tools and techniques that make this transition much easier and allow for 100% fidelity to the comps. In this session, Laurent Bugnion (Director of UX Integration, IdentityMine) will show tips and tricks gathered over 6 years of experience. We will talk about design time data, exporting assets from Adobe design applications, measuring and adapting, animations... Together we will learn techniques that apply to multiple platforms, from Silverlight to Windows Phone 7 to WinRT, WPF, Microsoft Surface, Kinect and more.
