Hi, first things first, thanks so much to the organizers & sponsors of the Mobilitydays event (www.mobilitydays.com) for celebrating such great and interesting event.

Second, as promised, here are the slides & demos with full code.

First, the slides:

Developing WP7 Applications with Silverlight – http://www.slideshare.net/joslat/md2010-jlwp7sldev

Developing WP7 Games with Silverlight – http://www.slideshare.net/joslat/md2010-jlwp7slgamedev

And do not forget to check the demos, all together in a single compressed file for your ease.

Well this is one of the moments that one of you that loves to code, design, speak & share enjoys the most, when other fellows ask you to help them share knowledge :)

First of all, thanks to the magnificient team of professionals that is managing both events and I’m extremely glad to have been chosen as speaker for “first time” at these great events. My thanks!

First things first, MobilityDays is happening the Day after tomorrow.. on 23th of September, in Zagreb, Croatia, to the East of Europe. But do not worry, you can assist without having to book a flight! Sesssions will be broadcasted through live meeting :).

There, I’ll be speaking on two sessions : “Developing Windows Phone applications with Silverlight” and “Building games forWindows Phone with Silverlight”. Sessions will be in english.

So, what are you waiting for, go and register : www.mobilitydays.com (update: it’s free for MVP’s and INETA User Group Leaders) and well, there are a lot of very good speakers there – apart from me, the “newbie” I mean ;) – Joking!!  I expect to make a pretty entertaining and insightful sessions and I hope you enjoy them :).

Also, I’ve been selected to speak at TechEd Europe 2010 conference, so can’t be happier.

I know this deserves a “post apart” and it will have it definitely – let me finish this week and I’ll be back with more details regarding the session that, for starters, will focus on the 3D (2.5D & 3D) capabilities of Silverlight, on a very intense practical session, going from the basis to creating awesome – and I mean that – 3D interactive interfaces in Silverlight. More about this later…

By now, if you haven’t registered, don’t think more, go to http://europe.msteched.com/registration and register before tickets run out!!

Have fun!

3D (2.5D) Interaction Experimental site July 15, 2010

If you have followed me on my latest posts you should have seen some of my Behavior experiments for 3D interaction, trying to emulate already existing Real world & 2D interaction design patterns as MouseOver, Click, etc… in 3D (or Silverlight’s actual 2.5D, for Desktop & Windows Phone).

I have put the site www.bcndev.net as a sample or playground thinking on nothing but on providing a 3D interactive experience, with the points that I am not being paid for (it’s a volunteer work for promoting the Barcelona Developers User’s group event) and I have thought on nothing (I repeat myself but I want this clear) apart from the experience, so do not expect a great degree of indexability, accessibility, usability or even performance… the Matrix background effect is a killer of CPU resources …

Disclaimers: If I had the time, hopefully I will do it “when I can” I will implement a “effect adjuster” for adapting it to reduce depth layers & elements on each layer and, maybe, even the falling speed… to adapt it to get a decent framerate… I’ve got on mind other optimizations but sadly not the time, so sorry in advance if this is going too slow for you to appreciate the 3D interactions.
I have added GPU acceleration & left all the debugging on for you to be able to see the performance. It should not go very bad if you have a decent GPU so please leave me a message if it does not, and include the FPS. Thanks!!!

This site is using the 3D behaviors I have published at the Expression Gallery and some others that I have yet to polish before publishing, some of the new ones are part of an experiment of providing 3D effects to 2D elements (usercontrols in fact) and allowing them to nest their DataContexts and thus providing an interesting way of navigating the information. This has yet to be polished but you can see it working when you press the “+ Info” button and then the “Ver Detalles” button…” then just also press over a session or speaker…
As for the behaviors, you can see & get them here:

I would greatly appreciate any feedback you can provide, thanks!!

And, as always, have fun!

Note: The matrix effect is an evolved version of the original code from Terence Tsang, http://www.shinedraw.com – thanks Terence for all those great samples :).

INETIANS 10k entry – code released :) October 23, 2009

Well it took some time but I have published the full source code of my Mix 10k entry http://2009.visitmix.com/MIXtify/TenKDisplay.aspx?SubmissionID=0138.

It comes from some background experiments with parallax, inspired in old age video games and an interesting entry from Jose Fajardo, http://www.cynergysystems.com/blogs/page/josefajardo?entry=what_a_beautiful_thou_distracting in which he introduced a very interesting parallax background effect that I tried to emulate and make it a bit toolable –  a codeplex project for this background system is on its way ;).

You can get the code here: http://inetians.codeplex.com/

Have fun!

Thank you KulenDayz!

I am very thankful to have went to the famous european Event KulenDayz, name that comes with the game of mixing Cool Days and the famous “Kulen”, a great famous spicy food which is also, the logo of  the event, which can be seen next:

Kulen Dayz

There I was very happy to be able to provide an introduction to the new Silverlight version, 3.0, which will see the light in short time, the 10th of July.

As promised, here are my slides and the demos I showcased there. Note that I took off the videos in order to make the demos as small as possible.

I’ll be glad to answer any question regarding the slides or the demos.

And, as for the event, I’ll try to make a post in short, but, for now, here are some images I took there: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joslat/sets/72157619870531664/

Hope you enjoyed the session :)
