Mix06 Thailand Demo Screencasts
I've recorded and posted screencasts for the demo-building portion of my Mix06 talk. It's broken up into four parts:
- XamlPad: A quick, live introduction to XAML where I display some photos in a thumbnail view
- Visual Studio & Expression: I use Visual Studio and Expression to create the initial UI for the application
- Richer Typography: Adding a custom font to our application as well as page layout for the text
- Simple Video: Add video into the project and demonstrate code behind
I know everyone's very excited to hear me stutter and sound silly over a PC microphone. Believe it or not, doing a screencast is harder than coding live on stage.
The total viewing time is just over 22 minutes (I'll post a link to the combined video shortly). The application isn't super-complex, but my goal during the talk was to give an overview and taste for the platform.
If there's interest, I can expand upon the sample in order to make it more sophisticated.
You can download the source files, but note that I haven't included the font (Lindsey) in the source as the licensing terms do not permit it. Lindsey will be available with the WPF SDK when we release.
