6 Developers, 6 Weeks, 1 Major Innovation: Creating “Corel Paint it! Touch”
Jennifer Fraser, Corel Corporation
Session Type: Demo
Windows 7 is building the foundation for a new era of touch applications on the desktop, and the Corel team — creators of the award-winning natural-media application, Painter — saw a perfect fit for drawing and painting in this powerful new touch environment. Constrained by having 6 developers for just 6 weeks, the Corel team innovated in the emerging area of desktop touch applications to produce a new product: Corel Paint it! Touch.
This presentation will take attendees through the design and development process for the product, will identify the challenges presented by touch applications in a traditional desktop environment, and will culminate with a demonstration of the final product.
