    In November, myself and Albert Shum drove a few hours north to visit our friends at the Vancouver User Experience Meetup, to talk about Metro and the design philosophy behind Windows Phone. The beginning of the presentation traced the roots of the Windows Phone Metro design language, a topic we’ve spoken about at a number of developer conferences (Watch Albert at MIX 2010). From there, we decided to push the discussion a bit further this time, to look at where we see Metro going next. As you can imagine, this was a lot of fun. Our presentation was over an hour long and covered a lot of material, so rather than just posting the slides up, I’ll describe the talk in its four parts. First, the story of Metro.

    If you are working with XAML at any level, you should use binding for any data that you are handling in your application. And if you don't use binding, then you probably should - both for convenience and future compatibility purposes. But that's beyond the point of this article. With many Windows Phone applications that I work on, there is one common thing I noticed - the binding harness is almost always the same, with small modifications adapted to a specific project structure.

    We, users of the Windows Phone OS, love its fluidity and how content is populated smoothly throughout the OS (take for example how album thumbnails are loaded in the Pictures Hub).

    As developers, we don’t have any built-in mechanism to populate content this way, but we can fix that by using transitions, storyboards and behaviors. For this post, we will create two classes: OpacityTransition and OnLoadedOpacityBehavior.

    This is Part 2 of the translation of the performance chapter of the Windows Phone developer book I co-authored with many of my Hungarian peers. Other parts of this series can be found here.

    We finished the previous part discussing the roles of the CPU and the GPU in the phone. Let’s see an example of the CPU’s task!

    If you tried to build applications for Windows 8 with XAML/C#, you may have noticed an annoying issue: If you have a list controls (for example a GridView) and you bind the ItemsSource property to a property of type ObservableCollection<Something> on your ViewModel, the GridView is not updated when the collection’s content changes. The CollectionChanged event is raised properly, but it is not honored by the binding system.

    Thankfully, this is a temporary bug, and it should be solved in the Consumer Preview version of Windows 8, due for release end of February. In the meantime, however, it is easy to circumvent this bug.

    Download Prism 4.1 at Microsoft Download Center

    Prism provides guidance designed to help you more easily design and build rich, flexible, and easy to maintain Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) desktop applications and Silverlight Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and Windows Phone 7.1 ("Mango") applications. Using design patterns that embody important architectural design principles, such as separation of concerns and loose coupling, Prism helps you to design and build applications using loosely coupled components that can evolve independently but which can be easily and seamlessly integrated into the overall application. Such applications are known as often referred to as composite applications.

    NOTE: If you are interested in Prism, you may also take a look at this ongoing SilverlightShow article series (4 parts available as of 2/20/2012) by Brian Noyes: "Working with Prism 4".

    In this episode I walk through adding a new feature, the ability to cancel switching between modules, which turns out to be a bit more tricky than we might have anticipated, and ends up with us creating a templated list of buttons to replace our original ListBox. (n.b. an even better choice might have been to use a tab control, but I didn’t think of that when I created this tutorial, so maybe that can be another refactoring for a future episode).

    Let’s face it people, if you can deliver your product in HTML without compromising on UI/UX then … you should !!!

    HTML is the ultimate cross platform technology, and that’s the sad truth.

    I still do believe that Silverlight has a large part to play both on the web and on the desktop BUT I admit HTML5 is starting to look good for delivering simple Line of Business applications.

    What I wanted to do today is discuss something interesting that I’ve been watching unfold, and that is the story of Microsoft Data Explorer.

    In the last post Phone Gap Tutorial #1 we looked at how to get ready to use phone gap and we created a sample project. In this next tutorial, we are going to look at the files that were created and the differences between this and a standard windows application.

    If you look at the files in the solution explorer, you will see some folders and files that are not part of the normal Windows Phone Application.We will only touch on items that differ from a normal application.
