WPF and WPF/E – Deep Dive

Bob Familiar

 

Windows Presentation Foundation is Microsoft’s new unified vector based UI library that combines traditional user interface controls with state of the art 2D and 3D graphics, documents and multi-media elements. A new declarative language XAML and the Expression Suite of Design tools have been introduced to assist developers and designers to work together. Windows Presentation Foundation / Everywhere (WPF/E) offers a subset of the power of WPF as a plug-in to IE and Firefox on Windows and Safari on the Mac. This session will offer architects and developers a deep dive into the capabilities of both WPF and WPF/E using XAML, C# and JavaScript.
