What do I expect from Build Windows?

Well, quite a lot actually. The fact that the official agenda is completely empty (they're not even telling us who is doing the keynote ontheir website) leaves us with wondering what will happen. Of course, this means that people are getting more and more anxious to see what is going on and the blogosphere is filled with rumors. Which ones will be true is something we'll learn next week. I expect we'll get a lot of information about Jupiter. The new development platform is something that interests ......

Z-Index in Silverlight / WPF

I was working on some animations the other day. To make a long story short, I had a Listbox in a Grid that needed to flip. Think of a page-flip like animation. Of course, on the other side of the page there is another page. Otherwise, why bother turning it? The basic techniques for this is quite simple. I defined two listboxes, one was turned around by using the PlaneProjection and set the Y-Rotation to 180.0. In the grid that housed the listboxes I put both listboxes on top of each other, the first ......

Surface V2.0

It’s been quiet around here. And the reason for that is that it’s been quiet around Surface for a while. Now, a lot of people assume that when a product team isn’t making too much noise that must mean they stopped working on their product. Remember the PDC keynote in 2010?

The same applies to Surface. While we didn’t hear much ......

Changes are coming…

I have to admit it. I’ve had fun the last 14 years. Starting a company, not knowing where it would take me. Hiring our first employee, that was kinda scary…Moved away from Delphi and jumped aboard the .net train, without a second of regret. Became a MVP because the company allowed me to spend a lot of time on the community. Saw my first Surface computer while attending a MVP summit in Redmond. Became one of the first 4 Surface MVP’s because the company allowed me to work with that technology extensively ......

Sigh… stay focussed, Dennis!

A couple of days ago I was playing around with Silverlight 4. Amazing platform, especially since they now support multi-touch events. But before you can run, you’ve got to learn how to walk, right? So, in order to learn some of the new capabilities of the platform I decided to make an application to keep track of all my contacts. I know, there are numerous applications out there that can peform that task much better, but I didn’t want to create a usefull program, I just wanted to have a ‘real’ project ......
