The last one is going to hit the Humble Dialog Box for sure, but we’ll go much farther than that into code centric solutions for composite applications, menus, event synchronization, and interactions with the backend. I think there are many times when just a bit of explicitly written code beats all the drag and drop wizardry in the world.
I think it’s going to be a tremendous lineup and I’m excited just to be a part of it. The speaker list looks remarkably like my blogroll, and I’m curious to observe the small, but feisty Bellware beast in his native habitat.
