However, I have an inkling most traditional programmers love it specifically because when it comes to Design vs. OOP, they’ll side with OOP. Not to mention .NET I think… like… works this way, hehe. I side with Design because of my Flash background. Either way, after seeing the example code in these posts, I have a much better appreciation for code behind and how it relates to Sliverlight’s implementation. Specifically how the View’s GUI layout is done in XAML, and that XAML can be used in both Design and Blend. Hotness.
If the Adobe CS suite would ever catch the heck up, we could be doing stuff like this. Imagine it:
– Designer makes comps in Photoshop or Fireworks
– Designer can animate and layout screens in Flash
– Flex or Flash Developer could then program ActionScript around those screens.
Vice-versa, the designer could design around the programmer’s implementation of screens. Agency vs. software shop work-flow, but either way. For now, us in the Adobe camp muddle through our production art / break up, and can only look on with envy.
