Let’s face it, you’re not an artist. And besides, your users seem happy enough with their current user interface, so why bother with WPF? You want to learn more about WPF because it offers the best user interface programming platform for client apps. There’s a built in command model, data binding is extremely flexible and asynchronous loading is a single line. This talk explores the meaning behind XAML so you understand what’s actually happening behind your code. You also learn how to cleanly separate layout behavior and appearance. It also empowers beautiful effective next generation applications. You’ll leave this talk with understanding how WPF can benefit you and your business applications, whether or not you have an artist on your team.
