I recently had the chance to meet up with Kam VedBrat, lead program manager of Expression Web.
Before working on Expression Web, though, Kam made his way through quite a few other divisions here at The Firm.
Along the way, he picked up quite a bit of knowledge about the new bits driving Vista GUIs.
Kam talks about how to take advantage of some of the new features, like Glass. Glass is a feature that has actually been a little mystery to devs, and Kam clears it all up with a simple demo.
We also get a nice explanation on how composition works under the Desktop Window Manager.
Basically, even though Vista looks
more or less like good old Windows, a lot has changed, and Kam has the inside story.
He even clears up the answer to a question that's been troubling devs for a while now: What
Aero? We've all heard a lot about it, and in many different contexts. As a result, there's some confusion about what it really is.
Is it an API? Is it a spec? Is it an experience?
Watch and learn, my friends
