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.

In this session, we will explore both the multi-touch APIs, as well as the Ribbon's markup-based UI.
