Introducing XAML Studio

As a XAML developer, you may sometimes wish you had the ability to quickly prototype your UI and debug your markup without having to load a project in Visual Studio. This can be a huge workflow boost for designers or even for developers just wanting to try out new ideas. With the release of XAML Studio, we are able to close this grab for creators and also enable much more.

In this episode, Michael Hawker(@XAMLLlama) sits down with Jeremy to introduce us to XAML Studio. He walks us through the experience of editing and inspecting live XAML updates without the need for a build or compile step. We also get to see demos of the debugging experience, the control toolbox, and even how to work with 3rd party controls.
