With XAML, Silverlight, and the Expression suite of web development software, Microsoft has provided all the tools that designers, developers, and managers need to collaborate on creating breakthrough user experiences. However, designers and developers have traditionally found it difficult to collaborate, and the mere presence of the tools doesn't solve that problem. There's been a growing clamor for reliable, practical information on making this collaboration work in real enterprises.

With XAML, Silverlight, and the Expression suite of web development software, Microsoft has provided all the tools that designers, developers, and managers need to collaborate on creating breakthrough user experiences. However, designers and developers have traditionally found it difficult to collaborate, and the mere presence of the tools doesn't solve that problem. There's been a growing clamor for reliable, practical information on making this collaboration work in real enterprises. In The Zen of XAML, Robby Ingebretsen offers this desperately needed guidance. Ingrebetsen is singularly well qualified to write this book. He is a leading edge "creative developer" with a deep understanding both the technical and design issues involved - and also former program manager for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). Ingrebetsen offers a specific and detailed roadmap for effective collaboration and workflow on projects that involve both state-of-the-art design and software development. Drawing on his unique experience, he shares a nuanced perspective on the collaboration-enabling capabilities of WPF and Silverlight. He gives designers the information and support they need to buy in and "take ownership" of their new integration-related roles; and helps developers understand how implementing workflow can benefit them, and what they need to do to support it.
