Of all the user interface technologies that have reached the main stream, from HTML to Windows Forms to Java Swing, XAML is the most composable. It offers an incredible degree of code reuse, customization, and componentization. It has so many options for piecing interfaces together, that selecting the right one can sometimes be overwhelming.

Choose the right pattern, and your WPF, Silverlight, Phone, or Metro code will be well organized and easy to maintain. Your co-workers will buy you lunch, and your apps will bring in tons of cash.
Software is math. Michael L Perry has built upon the works of mathematicians like Bertrand Meyer, James Rumbaugh, and Donald Knuth to develop a mathematical system for software development. He has captured this system in a set of open source projects, Update Controls and Correspondence. As a Principal Consultant at Improving Enterprises, he applies mathematical concepts to building scalable and robust enterprise systems. You can find out more at qedcode.com.
