Jaime Rodriguez On Windows Phone, Windows Presentation Foundation, Silverlight and Windows 7
Our second stop in the “WPF for Line Of Business Tour” was London, last week.
We had a full-house with people from Germany, Italy, France, Poland, Switzerland, Spain, United Kingdom, and probably other countries. The content evolved (a small %) from the LA training: Updated decks; Updated demos. London attendees, THANKS for joining us!! It was a pleasure! New York, Chicago, & Phoenix get ready! PS.- While in London, we also got to xamlize with WPF disciples Marlon Grech and Sacha Barber. I had not met them in person before, but I can now confirm: their passion and knowledge on WPF and .NET is as good as you read on their blogs. Cheers!

Thanks for a good session, shame I had to leave at lunch on the 2nd day. The MVVM stuff was getting good.
Like the look of the Southbridge application, however the Grid is extremely slow - especially when sorting (3 seconds), even with a small amount of data.
Is that the expected trade-off for having rich content (calendars / images / details view) displayed? Or could performance be improved by writing better custom sort code?
The grid in Southridge (actually all the code in SR) is totally anti-optimized; if I recall I have virtualization off, way too many controls, etc.. It is not meant to be a perf sample. Southridge needs to be refactored even further too. I should do that soon.
I hope you left early to catch a plane or go do domestic duties.
If that is not the case, then I hope you already heard that your name was pulled first when we raffled the 24" HP Touchsmart giveaway.
It is a shame you had to be present to win (Karl's rules, not mine, I fought for you ).
I thought as much about the Grid. I'm about to start a role doing WPF/Silverlight in Financials, so found the 2 days extremely useful.
I had to catch an 18:30 to Denmark from Stansted - so unfortunately had to leave early.
I hope you're joking about the raffle...
