XAML Icon My one-hundred-and-twentieth podcast is up. In this episode, I talk to Felix, a Designer, and Richard, a Developer about their Odd Couple relationship as they create Silverlight and WPF applications. They also speak frankly about their opinions as full time users of Blend and VS2008.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Telerik's new stuff is pretty sweet, check out the ONLINE DEMO of their new ASP.NET AJAX suite. RadGrid handles sorting, filtering, and paging of hundreds of thousands of records in milliseconds, and the RadEditor loads up to 4 times faster and the navigation controls now support binding to web services on the client.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

I'm pretty sure I heard some Baby! Smash! in the background about 10 min into it. :)

Another great show Scott! Its good to hear some fellow Brits on there to. A tool was mentioned called K-XAML. I've googled for it but can't find it - can you post a link to it please?

the tool is kaxaml and it can be found here:

thanks for the show on WPF scott, that is my focus ATM.. i agree that the lack of intellisense in blend is a bit whack, but surely it isn't far behind.

Great show Scott. So I'm interested in how many organizations do a complete separation of "designer" and "developer." In most I've encountered devs tend to do both for software (kind of like you in Baby! Smash!). Great questions too.
