WPF - The Beauty of the Beast

Subject:  You must register at http://www.clicktoattend.com/?id=120204 in order to be admitted to the building and attend.

The Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is the user interface subsystem of the .NET 3.0 Framework. Its architecture requires you to rethink how to design and develop in the presentation layer. In this presentation we will explore the exciting new UI framework, learn what capabilities it has, and examine some tools used in WPF development.

Speaker:  Josh Smith, New York Times (TimesReader Team)

Josh Smith has been developing desktop applications in C# since the .NET Framework was first released. He was awarded the Microsoft MVP and CodeProject MVP titles in 2007 for his work in the WPF community. Josh has been a WPF fanatic since it was in pre-beta, and has helped share his enthusiasm for WPF with others via CodeProject articles and blog posts. He worked for a couple of years at Infragistics, as a developer in their Windows Forms Development Lab. During that time he became deeply interested in user interface technologies and design. After that he had a brief stint as a software consultant in the financial services industry, but found that it did not tickle his fancy. He did, however, have the rare opportunity to create a WPF application for the Elite Model Management agency, which was shown in a video at the Microsoft Windows Vista launch events. Josh is currently working for the New York Times on their fantastic Times Reader application, which uses WPF for the presentation layer.
