Man, It’s been a while since I’ve done an update here. I’ve been completely slammed working on a Kiosk project.
Anyway… I came across this today and thought I’d post up a quick update. It’s a great video from Channel9 where Jaime Rodriguez and Anson Tsao discuss the new Multi-touch capabilities that will be available in WPF 4 Beta 1.
Found this today while looking at Virtual Earth integration. Sounds perfect.
InfoStrat.VE allows WPF and Microsoft Surface developers to take full advantage of Virtual Earth 3D with minimal overhead. Simply reference the dll, add a single VEMap control to your XAML, and you have a map! The control eliminates the Win32 Interop restrictions, so you can do everything with this VE control that you could do with any native WPF control, including:
Overlay items (no more transparent windows!)
Rotate and transform the map within the interface (no more boring rectangles, bring on the 360 degree interfaces!)
Use the map within a Visual Brush (you know you want faded reflections!)
The ‘Developing for Microsoft Surface’ session will cover the Surface SDK and how it aligns with multi-touch developer roadmap for Windows 7 and WPF.
This session introduces the newly available Microsoft Surface SDK. Hear about the unique attributes of Microsoft Surface computing, dive into vision-based object recognition and core controls like ScatterView, and learn how the Surface SDK aligns with the multi-touch developer roadmap for Windows 7 and WPF. Additionally, learn how you can become a part of the expanding partner ecosystem for Microsoft Surface and leverage your existing investments in WPF and Visual Studio to build engaging end user applications. Attendees will receive access to the Microsoft Surface SDK.
Here’s a neat little Silverlight application that serves up interactive presentations about Microsoft products and services using Silverlight.
Learning Snacks are free, short, interactive presentations about popular topics and have been created by Microsoft Learning experts. Each Snack is delivered by using innovative Microsoft Silverlight technology and includes various media, such as animations and recorded demos. At the end of each presentation, you can view more Snacks, learn more about the topic, or visit a related Web site.
