Building a Compelling Design with a PivotViewer Collection

43 minutes, 3 seconds

Last month we held an invitation-only Silverlight Pivot Summit on campus. They were kind enough to let us record it for Niners. We'll air the five parts throughout the week.

Jeff Weir walks you through how to build a compelling design for your Silverlight PivotViewer Collection.  We review how to compose trade cards, general best practices when building a collection and the way to captivate your audience through your visuals. PivotViewer is a new visualization technology delivered as a Silverlight control. It helps visualize large collections of items in a more useful, powerful and organized way.

Below are links to resources which will help you get started with the PivotViewer Control today:

· Silverlight PivotViewer Download and Technical Documentation: here
· Collection Building Tools by Live Labs: here
· PivotViewer Community Forum: here
· First customer implementation: Hitched, a leading UK wedding planning site

  • Great demo!  Do you have examples/tutorials on how to create HTML template and use with the Pauthor Command Line tool?  Thanks in advance.

  • Any plans in the works to release a Pauthor WPF app to create/edit collections?  Would it be an add-in to Blend?  Would be nice.

  • I don't know about the people in the video spending the whole time on Facebook and TweetDeck but I got a lot out of this.  Great post.
