Target:
WPF

AGILE Message Center
Client:

Target:
WPF
Delivery:
XAML + C#

To help product managers visualize and understand the need for a messaging system within the AGILE application, I took it upon myself to design and develop a working prototype to illustrate my solution. With ~90% production ready code, I could just hand this off to the implementation team. WPF beats a Visio or Powerpoint example any day!
