Taking Your Application to the Next Level with Windows 7

Windows 7 has several user interface and performance enhancements from the Windows 7 Taskbar, Jump Lists, and more. While your application will run on Windows 7 without leveraging these new features, your users will be far more productive if they are able to quickly open recent documents and records, find information and navigate your application in a natural way that is consistent with the rest of their Windows 7 experience. In this session, we will show you how to make your application shine, optimizing the user experience and performance on Windows 7
Beyond Human Interaction with Windows 7 Sensor and Location Platform

Your Windows 7 application can be aware of it surroundings through the use of the Windows 7 Sensor and Location Platform. Being aware is the first step to having a truly contextual application that adapts to its surroundings and helps your users be more productive with less effort. The platform allows you to add this location based service and sensor technology with a few lines of code allowing you to focus on what makes sense in the context for the user. Should you change your color scheme if it’s dark out? What’s different in your application if your user is at work verses at home?

In this session, we will explore the ease of leveraging this platform and some of the scenarios that make sense. In addition, we’ll learn how the new DirectWrite and Direct2D APIs will allow you to add fast, scalable, high-quality, 2D and 3D graphics, text, and images to your applications.

Building Next Generation User-Interface with Multitouch and Ribbon on Windows 7

Learn how Multitouch and the Ribbon provide you with powerful capabilities to differentiate your application. Multitouch is how we interact with objects all day every day in the physical world. Windows 7 supports multitouch out of the box so you can extend this same paradigm into the software world.

With very little code, you are able to recognize and respond to multiple gestures at once and give your users a very natural method of interacting with your application. The Ribbon allows you to replace the outdated battleship gray chrome in your application with a rich, animated UI. In this session, we will explore both the multi-touch APIs, as well as the Ribbon’s markup-based UI
