So the count down begins for the kick off to tech-ed Barcelona 2008 and my third time at the event presenting so really excited about next week. Tech-ed is always one of the better organised events that I go to and the country drinks are always fun to meet new geeks. This year I am co-presenting with my partners in crime Felix Corke and Ian “WPF Jedi” Griffiths. After the great feedback Felix and I have had with the Mix Essentials speaker tour we did this year we have decided to refactor our “Beauty and the Geeks” talk so that rather than talk about the way in which we work we are going to show you live on stage by building a sample application. I will also be hanging out on the Silverlight and Live Services ATE stand during the week if you want to ask questions then this is a great place to whiteboard some problems.
So if you are attending and you would like to know more about Developer-Designer Workflow when using Blend and Visual Studio please come and check out our session. If you want to hook up for a beer or three drop me an email. I will be twittering throughout the event so you can follow my updates at http://twitter.com/RichGee
Beauty and the Geeks: Developer-Designer Workflow
November 13 13:30 - 14:45
Developer - designer workflow is one of the hottest topics talked and blogged about this year in the RIA space. If you are building or thinking about building RIA applications using Silverlight then this session is for you. Come and interact with a real life team that consists of a Designer, Integrator and Developer as they implement a Silverlight solution live on stage leveraging tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Expression Blend and Visual Studio using a workflow that allows them to build applications effectively in an agile environment. The session aims to provide a deeper insight into the building of RIA applications using not only Microsoft technologies but also the tools that designers have been using for the last 10 years
