Microsoft's rapid-application-development (RAD) tool codenamed "KittyHawk" is an attempt by Microsoft to make .Net easier for those outside its traditional developer community. KittyHawk, is targeted at fledgling coders who're interested in building business applications. The idea, is to bring the Fox/Access style of programming to .Net.
"KittyHawk is targeting the corporate guy with some Excel/Access savvy," said a tipsters, who asked for anonymity. "It's a drag and drop, template-driven, visual designer…. It's not code-based, but you can write code if you want to," revealed MJFoley.
Word is KittyHawk will produce Silverlight 4.0 and XAML code.
