XamlFests Return in February

XamlFests Return in February

  • Comments 1

XAML. WPF. Silverlight.In December, I blogged about XamlFest, a free event in Waltham, MA that gave attendees a chance to learn WPF and Silverlight via instructor led hands-on labs. 

That quickly filled up, and so have others, so the ISV Developer team is offering additional XamlFests across the country, with three in the northeast & NYC areas.

From the ISV team post:

[…] These are two-day interactive events where you’ll learn about the platforms, tools and processes used to deliver differentiated user experiences.  It’s a chance for you to mingle with user experience minded Microsoft folks and industry leading design firms and design integrators. You'll learn about WPF and Silverlight.

Each Xamlfest day will start with interactive sessions by Microsoft and our design partners, followed by a free lunch and a chance to network, have some fun and win prizes.  Each afternoon will be geared toward assisted development with instructor-led walkthroughs, or better yet, come with your own project in mind.

  • Thanks Chris for posting the notice about the XaML Fest.  

    I signed up and attended the Farmington, CT event - great!  Got lots of help with things I was looking to use in current projects.

    Suggestion for those that will attend one in the future: load up your laptop with the tools they suggest - even if you have to DL trial versions.  Spending a little time with the Expression Studio 2 apps (especially Blend 2), before the event will help you keep pace with the assisted development portions.  

    BRN..
