    WPF in a box(s)

    • 8 Comments

    WPF-in-a-Box

    We’ve got some sensational WPF training kits just in. There’s some great content in these 2-disk sets and we’re looking to get them out widely.

    Disk 1 is an install of all of the VS2008 express editions.

    Disk 2 is where the real goodness is. It installs WPF Reactor (about which, more in a later post), pre-configured with the WPF-in-a-Box content

    In-a-box in WPF Reactor

    There’s

    • WPF Whitepapers
    • Instructional Videos
    • Hands-On-Labs
    • A reference application (with all the source)
    • the WPF Toolkit
    • Links and resources

    And, when I say some, I mean LOTS.

    In-a-box in boxes

    If you can think of more good ways to distribute them and get their content widely used, then let me know.

    Tim Sneath : Announcing Family.Show v3 – Our WPF Reference Application

    • 1 Comments

    Family.Show.3 screenshotTim’s blogged about a cool WPF reference application released onto CodePlex by Microsoft and Vertigo. Family.Show 3 is a family tree program that allows you to quickly enter relationships, key dates and other information. Dave tells me it’s not perfect for that (it’s a reference app and has some limitations in its implementation of the genealogy functionality he was after), but it is great for showing off some neat techniques, not least of which is the ability to install it directly from the Vertigo site via ClickOnce.

    I’ve deliberately left out direct links from this post because you should check out Tim’s post and check out Family.Show.3
