Welcome to my blog!

In the coming weeks, I will be posting a series of posts based on my experiences doing WPF application development. For the time being, the focus will be on client applications, although that may change as I take on new projects.

Over the years, I have had the chance to work on a number of interesting and challenging problems. My title at MS is Software Design Engineer in Test (SDET), and I spent a couple of years working on tools used internally, many of which are still actively used today. Unfortunately, although most of these projects used .Net technologies (Winforms, C#), very few made use of WPF. If only because WPF is a great platform, and partly due to the fact I'm a member of the WPF team, I thought it was important to start focusing on projects that used WPF.

So why yet another blog? As part of my learning experience, I have been spending quite a bit of time reading samples on MSDN, as well as searching the Internet and Forums for answers to my various questions. I found Bea Stollnitz's blog (formerly Bea Costa) to be extremely useful in answering many of my data binding questions, and although I won't pretend mine will be quite as polished and helpful, I figured it couldn't hurt to aspire to it :)
