Blend a designer's tool? You're partly right, partly wrong. Yes, the designer on your team should use Blend, but so should you when building Silverlight applications. Did you know Blend has rich data binding capabilities? And do you know how to create custom controls using Blend?
All this and more will be explained in this session aimed at developers! Presenter: Gill Cleeren
