New Controls and Tools – PDC2008 Cool Hunting finale
Monday was a blow out day for The Continuum Show. 5 videos from PDC were posted showing off new, unique and useful tools. As UI technologies improve and expectations grow control and tool vendors are adapting and changing in interesting ways. I’m loving the attention paid to enabling better experiences.
Here’s the rundown:
- Exploring Time and Space with Infragistics – Timeline, Map and Zoombar controls
- Smooth Scrolling Datagrids with Xceed – Innovative Datagrid from the future
- Dynamic 3D Charts with Telerik – flexible 2D/3D charts, you can even use your own 3D model
- Shazzam – A Tool for Creating WPF Pixel Shader Effects – Useful tool for building and designing WPF Pixel Shader Effects
- Smart Search and Replace with Aggiorno – Regular Expressions with custom AI that runs in Visual Studio
To finish up the Cool Hunting expedition at PDC2008, I present two more videos. First off, actual footage of the big 9 guy walking around. Don’t get too close, he might challenge you to a dance off.
Next up is a quick clip of David Teitlebaum’s "Multiple WPF Pixel Shader Effects applied to the input of a WebCam in real-time" demo.
