Why, you might ask, does a Software Development Kit (SDK) team need its own blog? What do we have to offer the Windows Presentation Foundation developer community that's not available elsewhere? Good questions, to be sure... Let me tell you why we started this blog.
The principal reason is that we're a team of 20 writers, editors and leads that all have specialized product knowledge that we want to share. Readers of this blog can look forward to receiving product information, sample code, tips and tricks, and general insight into the Windows Presentation Foundation from individuals with direct access to the architects of the platform. Another reason is that we're user advocates; we want the platform to be as useful and well designed as possible. We pride ourselves in effectively advocating design decisions that are in the best interest of our users. This blog provides a forum for you to influence us.
Here are a few other reasons for this blog's existence:
From top to bottom, everyone on the Windows Presentation Foundation SDK team values your insight, your feedback, your ideas, and most of all, your time. We're here to help you create world class solutions using WPF -- if you're blocked, we're not doing our job properly. We care about your experience, and we want to be accountable to our customers. This blog is your conduit to our team. Please use it to let us know what you like about our SDK as well as what we could improve. And if it just so happens that you learn a few things along the way, all the better.
Thanks for your time -- and welcome.
Keith, Lead Programming-Writer
