Part 7.1 (yes, .1) of my series on building a line-of-business application with Silverlight is now available on the SilverlightShow.net website here:
This is the start of a 7 part mini-series on styling the application within my main series of building line of business applications. As I expected (and hoped) this article (being predominantly opinion based) is generating some controversy so join in and add your own comments – the designer-developer interaction needs to be argued and discussed widely and I thought I’d get some going by prodding it with a big stick. This is the only opinion article in this mini-series – don’t worry I’ll be getting to the real stuff soon. The articles in this series will be released on a weekly basis so expect part 2 in a week or so. For these articles I’m still working in Silverlight 2 as Silverlight 3 doesn’t have a go-live license yet (and we have no idea when it will) and many people have been working with my existing framework so I want to keep helping them. I will be noting new Silverlight 3 features throughout the articles where appropriate though that would allow you to do whatever it is in a better way.
