Seminar: Dazzling Design-Time features in the .NET runtime.
Level: In-depth
One of the many great features of .NET is its rich design-time architecture that allows controls and components to be built and used inside Visual Studio.

We will demonstrate how this design-time experience can be enhanced and how these features also can be used in your deployed applications.

A lot of the features that many developers believe exists only inside Visual Studio can actually be used within your own applications. This includes Windows Forms designer, property editors, code-generation and compilers.

The .NET design-time framework is based on a simple Service Oriented Architecture. Using this lightweight service oriented approach has proved to be a good way to implement loosely coupled applications.

We will show you many of these features and elaborate on the benefits of mastering the design-time architecture.
