Ready Summit Wrap up

Yesterday I attended the Launch of Office, Visa and Exchange ready summit. It was a great day with a lot of cool new technology showcased. One product that did strike a chord with me was the Microsoft Expressions Interactive Designer this is a new tool that has been created to allow your design team to create those funky user friendly UI’s then ship them over to your Dev team to add the all important functionality. After Mitch Denny’s presentation I headed back to the office to download the CTP and I have to say I was pretty impressed.

Now I ‘m no designer by any stretch of the imagination but I can see the potential of such a product. To have your design team the people who know what colour goes with what, to create your UI then simply save it off and have your Dev team then hook up all the functionality behind it using Visual Studio.

As I said this is not a tool for everyday developers but defiantly worth checking out.
