Let me guess. You learned just enough XAML to get by. You know how to create typical business application screens, but you don't have the time to learn enough to really drive XAML to its potential. This session is your shortcut. You'll see tangible techniques of advanced XAML, inspired by real projects. If you're a XAML noob, you can come and see what's possible, but these demos are for people who already know the basics of XAML and want to go deeper.

You will learn:

  • Layering, composition and other techniques to produce results in XAML you can't get in other UI technologies
  • A real-world example: How to show time-based data with advanced layout
  • An overview of several advanced scenarios, including dashboards, data visualization and control creation
