„Summary
In this article we have learned how important is to build prototypes at early stages of a project life cycle, and what powerful tools offers to us Expression Blend Sketchflow. Let’s summarized what we have learned:
- Sketchflow provide us with a quick and dirty way to build a prototype using just hand drawn sketches.
- We learn How to build a page by using sketched controls and reusable components.
- How to simulate complex interactions (animations, behaviors…).
- How to add real data to our prototype.
- How to integrate custom controls.
- Which other tools are available in the market and why Sketchflow can be the recommended one for Silverlight / WPF targeted developments.“
