Today we talked to Nikola Mihaylov, a developer in the Expression Blend team. Nikola is the developer of Fantasia Painter, an extremely highly ranked photo editing app for Windows Phone.
Nikola walked us through his app, and talked a bit about how he implemented various aspects of the app. He describes himself as 'obsessed with performance,' and had a few very interesting practices to share in that regard.
Per our usual practices, here are some relevant and interesting links:
