The last couple of days finding out about the future of Silverlight have
been great and I'm really pleased that we're at the forefront of this
technology and the next couple of years should be exciting.
of the information I'm not allowed to share but there is one bit I can
because we produced it, I've been meaning to blog about it for a while.
Its about how you can structure the designer - developer workflow for
increased business benefit.
We've delivered quite a number of
Silverlight projects including some pretty large ones with tight
deadlines and hard stops. This has meant that we've continually refined
our processes to make sure we deliver these projects in the most
efficient and reliable way possible.
What we've found is that by
using Silverlight and the rest of the Microsoft product set we've been
able to reduce the overall amount of time that it takes us to deliver
The image above shows how this is possible but there are other bits
which we've also implemented. One which is really effective is sitting
the designer and developer who are working on things physically next to
each other, not opposite but next to so that they can see each others
screens and really collaborate.
We've found delivering
Silverlight projects in this way so much more effective that we're
beginning to build other projects in this way too and will continue to
iterate on it going forward.
