Last week I got the opportunity to present at the Atlanta Silverlight Meetup. I presented a talk entitled 'Thinking Outside the Battleship Gray Box' primarily focused on UI manipulations. Here was the synopsis:
As developers, we’ve grown accustomed to the confines of the technology platforms available to us. With new platforms like WPF and Silverlight, developers must change their perceived limitations and learn how to think outside the box to create engaging experiences. How can we use new presentation layer technologies to create more engaging applications and break away from the traditional battleship gray windows application?
The talk made reference to my posts Thinking Outside the Box - Using Programatic Animations in Silverlight and Street Fighter Style UI Compositing With Prism. You can find a screencast recording from the event below.
