The next page!

Well, the link isn’t QUITE active yet, but if you go to you will see the Overview information for Blend 3, and there’s a link to download the Blend 3 RC. Now, at *THIS* particular moment, it doesn’t seem like it’s up there, but the link on that page should go live very shortly.

I’ve been with the team for 6 and a half years now, and Blend continues to be something I’m very passionate about. To be completely honest, since I wasn’t a big Silverlight fanatic, the jump from Blend v1 to Blend v2 didn’t feel like a huge jump. Yes, there were TONS of under-the-cover changes that went into the product, so it could support Silverlight and things like that… but the jump from v2 to v3 is TREMENDOUS. Sketchflow is awesome. Silverlight support is awesome. Behaviors are awesome. Sample Data is awesome. I can go on for days, believe me. (In fact, if you look at all the training classes and things I’ve done internally, I *HAVE* gone on for days).

Grab it. Check it out. Let me know what you think.

Time to change the world. Again :).

    Dante, we the aspiring Blend devs and designers need you to do another fantastic public video series like your series on  It remains the best training on Blend, all these years later.  We need you to write us books too.  You're extremely logical and present so consisely.  

    A suggestion if you do, spend more time with binding, re-use it in other chapters(!) a lot, and do a variety of things with collections or arrays so we can build cool animated slideshows, and other things, because everyday I run into situations where I need an array of some sort.  

    We need your logic to help us see the light with Behaviors too!  With the increasing popularity of Blend, and especially with an increasing number of us risk takers who are jumping in with a shortage of information on how to use 3 and especially 4, your help would be priceless right now.  Live classes are so….impermanent.
