We’ll be publishing a schedule for shows as they evolve, but generally you will see a new episode every Thursday. We will post bonus shows as they come in, too!
But back to episode 3 … this is a great quick demo by David Kelley on multi touch in Silverlight. Silverlight TV is once again unscripted, shot in 1 take with warts and all. Don’t miss this one!
In this episode, John interviews Silverlight MVP David Kelley about developing multi-touch applications in Silverlight. David discusses the types of multi-touch hardware and his experiences in developing real world multi-touch applications. Then he jumps right into the code and shows how to create a multi-touch application with Silverlight 3 or 4! The application David demonstrates walks through the key multi-touch events, handling those events, touch IDs, tracking the location of the touch points, and much more.
Here are some useful links that David provided:
- here is a quick post to the SL3 code we used from Tim Heuer
- this code converts easily to SL4 also here is a quick post more about the UX concepts used in multitouch
- also the simon demo that includes multitouch (will have an SL4 version at MIX) that Davide Zordan and I worked on.
