WPF for Developers

You’ve seen the sizzle, but what about the steak? In this presentation I will describe Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) for developers. No reflected images. No animated page flipping transitions. No Expression Blend. No Silverlight. Just Visual Studio 2008 and code to actually do stuff. I’ll cover the WPF fundamentals, including XAML, dependency properties, data binding, commands, validation, and styles. Then I’ll talk about how to use these features to create desktop applications and describe some of the challenges I encountered creating my first WPF applications.
