Announcing the Podder Skinning Competition

I am excited to announce that I am hosting a new WPF competition!! This contest allows you to create and submit your own skin for Podder, the WPF podcast player application. Since Podder was built to support “structural skinning” it can use any UI that you dream up to display its data and behavior. This contest will allow participants to focus on using WPF to create an awesome user experience, without needing to worry about writing the underlying application functionality.

The Podder Skinning Competition, along with all the rules, prizes, and dates, is fully explained on this page of my blog. I also put together a step-by-step walkthrough of getting started with creating your own Podder skin, which you can check out here.

I look forward to seeing the creative Podder skins that people submit. This is a very exciting time to be a WPF developer or designer!

    Gauntlet of the Year

    This is fantastic!! I’m just a humble developer, looking for diviner status so this looks to be my ticket to the stars!

    This contest is so good for WPF too. There are some very big WPF Design & Developer companies out there, looking forward to seeing your entries.

    A friend asked me, “How can you compete against the truly awesome designers out there?” I thought about this for a minute and told him two stories come to mind, “David & Goliath” and the “Tortoise and the Hare.”

    For all you awesome designers out there, bring it on!
