Tuesday, November 11, 17:00 (Room 113)
In this session, filled with some very cool demos, you will not only learn how to extend your existing Silverlight 2 applications to work on Windows Mobile but also learn how to build rich mobile Silverlight apps that play media, handle simple gestures, have cool animations, access location and popular web services. We will also talk about tooling enhancements in Visual Studio that support Silverlight app development on Windows Mobile, what to consider when delivering eye-popping UI on mobile, and help you understand the key differences from developing Silverlight apps for the desktop.
MBL202 – Microsoft Silverlight 2 for Mobile: User Experience for Mobile Devices
Thursday, November 13, 13:30 (Room 113)
Get inspired from this session on designing mobile solutions using Silverlight for Mobile Devices. Designing for mobile is not just a matter of size: in this session we leverage the capabilities of Microsoft Expression Blend to create a stunning and meaningful vector-based graphics application. We look at examples that are not just focused on UX but on best practices for fluid and intuitive navigation, smart content organization, small form factor and cross-device support. We review all of these points in order to understand how to maximize the experience.
