Jaime Rodriguez On Windows Phone, Windows Presentation Foundation, Silverlight and Windows 7
Last year, Karl and I had a blast on our WPF for Line of Business tour. It was so cool to meet all these people doing or planning to do WPF. This year, budget is tighter, so no big tour.. but still plenty of WPF and Windows 7 training coming to a city near you.. Here are the details:
April 15, London, UK – Client Development with Visual Studio 2010, .NET Framework 4 & Windows 7 at Techdays UK Mike Taulty, Ian Griffiths, Paul Foster, and others will do a “Client Day” at Microsoft Techdays, UK. This is an all-day Lap Around Windows 7, .NET 4, and any thing you want to ask these guys. Mike,Ian and Paul know everything about WPF, Silverlight, .NET and predicting the stock market. Don’t miss out on their tips. Register here.
April 28,29 - Redmond, WA -- WPF For Line-Of-Business, Reloaded. Karl Shifflett and I will do the same two-day version of the WPF for Line Of Business training we did last year. This is a two-day deep dive into WPF: Day one is fundamentals, Day two has an MVVM focus.
This is FREE, you get breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. Register here. First-come, First serve, limited capacity. You should hurry, but please register only if you are committed to attend.
April 30, Redmond WA – Building Windows 7 Applications with Windows Presentation Foundation and .NET 4. Karl, me, and a few members of the WPF team will recap the new WPF features in .NET 4, and how to use these features to create applications that take advantage of Windows 7.
Expect to hear about client profile, multi-touch, taskbar, all the new graphics enhancements. etc.
If you can’t make these dates or these cities. Don’t worry. The Redmond trainings will be recorded and published online. That said, join us if you can. You will learn much more in person than watching the videos. We would love to have you.
Stay tuned for detailed agenda. Register as soon as possible if you want a seat.
[PS—If you have a blog, or you participate in any other form of social sharing, please spread the word. We thank you in advance!]
Update 3/24 -- We will only do the locations above. Again, Redmond will be recorded and posted online. As much as we would love to do a tour, this year it simply was not possible; let's try online and see if we can make it work; it could be a way to reach more people (even if not 1:1)
Speaking of multi-touch... When is the "Surface Toolkit for Windows 7" going to be released? The PDC09 session mentioned Q1 2010. Does that mean by 4/1/2010? TIA
Am a newbie here to this blog. But I was really taken away by your collection of "best WPF blogs" though it's a little dated by now (number of those links dont work now).
I added a Google Buzz post about this post to inform more people about your upcoming WPF trainings. Hope lots of people get to attend it. Good luck!!
Any chance you might be doing this in Chicago again? I could not attend last year.

We are trying the online medium this year. No plans for a tour. Let's make it work (feedback and suggestions for that are welcome).
For the WPF LOB training, are there any prerequisites/experience level needed for attending?
