MSDN Webcast: BenkoTIPS Live and On-Demand: Windows Presentation Foundation Demystified (Level 200)

In this webcast, we examine the core concepts of WPF, such as layout panels, data binding, styles, and control templates. We then use these to develop an application UI from the ground up. Today's applications need to do more than simply work. They need to draw in the user and provide a differentiated experience. This means moving beyond battleship-gray forms and boxy UIs to providing a positive user experience. Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) provides powerful capabilities to develop a compelling user interface, the kind that makes an application stand out. Presenter: Mike Benkovich, Developer Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation
