Arturo Toledo @ BESUG

Yesterday we had our session with Arturo Toledo. It was great, nice topics and a good speaker (thank you very much Arturo) who took time to answer questions from the audience.

Arturo talked about Sketchflow, Behaviors and Controls in Silverlight and Blend 3. He did this so passionate that I even started to go deeper in Sketchflow, especially the ability to sketch animations. Even the Flash audience who attended the session were convinced and they were asking where they could download Expression Blend.

Arturo is going to deliver the session again on Remix, so if you don’t know what to do today, hurry up to Brussels.

Further I want to thank these days for organizing the event and the catering (delicious) and Microsoft for the talk.
