I want to be wrong about XAML!

I've been rethinking how XAML looks and is written.

It's not controversial to say that XAML has its criticisms.

There are lots of things that can be better about XAML, which will make it easier to write, read, and maintain.

But "everyone" writes XAML the same way.

"Everyone" writes XAML the same way it was written 15+ years ago.

I think things can be better.

I think that we can learn from other languages and ways that software development has changed over the years since XAML was first launched.

I have examples and justifications.

I've been talking at a few user groups and conferences about this, and everyone I've spoken to agrees with me.


I don't want to have been doing it poorly for so many years.

I don't want "everyone" to be doing things in a sub-standard way all these years and have so many code bases that could be significantly easier to support and maintain.

I don't want to be the only person thinking about how things can improve.

I'd love to know that the way we write and work with XAML is the best way, and it can't be made better.

But, I don't think I am...

Yes, more on this will follow...
