XD010 – Family.Show: I See Dead People, with Windows Presentation Foundation
Speaker(s): Scott Stanfield
Abstract: For a hobby that revolves around dead people, genealogy is remarkably popular: it’s the fastest-growing scene in North America. And a perfect study for Vertigo’s next Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) reference application for Microsoft. Our designers employed every trick in the WPF book (styles, resources, templates, data binding, animation, transforms) to present an innovative visualization of the classic family tree, freeing our developers to concentrate on behind-the-scenes features like XPS, printing, PInvoke wrapper for Windows Vista common dialogs, and Click-Once for WPF. See all of this with hands-on demos and our top-10 list of stuff to know about WPF and Microsoft Expression Blend. And, unlike the real-world case studies, you get the source code.
DES07 – Design Rich Client Experiences with Expression Blend and WPF
Speaker(s): Celso Gomes, Christian Schormann

A panel of industry insiders, including guests from the New York Times, ad agencies, and design firms, will share their experiences and participate in a Q&A session about creating rich content experiences.

A 3D application that’s productive without being gratuitous. Cool!
