The Signal Episode 12: BMWs, Breathalyzers, and Kong

Sign in to queue


MIX08 is next week, and sadly, this is the last episode of The Signal. Mike and Thomas start by talking about real code in keynotes, the special screening of The King of Kong, and Steve Wiebe’s Donkey Kong world record attempt. You’ll hear a bit about what it takes to coordinate a record breaking attempt and why we have to respect the chain of custody. Then, after Thomas reminisces about his mobile breathalyzer experience, we call Jimmy Kim from Nexon/Innotive (at 3:00am in the morning!). Jimmy talks about his panel and session at MIX08, how WPF, Silverlight, and XAML make it easy to target multiple clients, how clients like BMW, Hyundai, and Nike need “one source, multi-use” for their assets, why he worked for six months to tweak BMW’s user interface, how design impacts the bottom line, and his session at MIX08 titled Effective User Interfaces in WPF and Silverlight.  

As mentioned, this is the last episode of The Signal for MIX08. Thank you for listening, and we hope to see you at the event!
