Looks like I am headed to CHI 2007 to participate in a session on user interface description languages. The session will explore the use of markup language UI’s (such as XUL, XAML and Flex) in prototyping user interfaces before handing them off for system integration. This could allow the interaction designer/engineer to become a more integral part of the iterations in the development cycle.
I’ll be demonstrating using XUL to create a mockup user interface. Scott Stanfield will be building the same interface in XAML. Hopefully, we’ll get people interested in using UI markup.
User Interface Description Languages: XUL & XAML
Thursday 11:30AM – 1:00PM
Scott Stanfield, Vertigo Software
Mark Finkle, Mozilla Corporation
Update: Fixed times and added link to session
