After one month of no posts, mainly because I was on a holiday and have become a dad for the second time, I thought it is time to write some posts again. In my vacation I've found a really cool article (actually it is a whitepaper) that is calles 'The New Iteration': How XAML transforms the collaboration between Designer and Developers in Windows Presentation Foundation. It is an extremely important whitepaper for discisionmakers, it'll give you an overview of what XAML is, how the whole workflow process and roles work so designers and developers can work together and make up a far more efficient workflow. This line I especially liked, cause I've seen it far to many times: 'There is no sitting over the shoulder of the developer explaining the vision and making sure she is re-creating it in the code.' Oh yeah, also really inportant is the following: 'It is worth noting that, for both the designer and developer, there is an upfront cost of learning the tools and the platform. Without this investment, much of the efficiencies to be gained in the workflow will be lost.'
