Scott Hanselman moblogs (cool term, for mobile/handheld blogging) from PDC - “They've brought out the folks from Adobe. They've got an image editing program (Adobe After Effects) that can export images/vectors/UI as XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language) declarative UI directly! They imported the XAML file directly into VS.NET and get a form. Its a VERY dynamic, sexy UI with animations, charts, gradients ...”. Thanks Scott - for your amazing real time updates from PDC.
