This WPF training course introduces Windows Presentation Foundation or WPF ("Avalon"), the new .NET technology from Microsoft for building rich Windows applications. It was originally part of .NET 3.0, previously called "WinFX" by Microsoft. WPF includes an XML-based markup language for defining program elements, Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML). WPF applications can be created using only code or a combination of code and XAML pages. This course covers the essentials of WPF, providing an orientation to this technology and a firm foundation for creating applications. The course is current to .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008.
WPF is a complex technology that can have a steep learning curve. This WPF course approaches the subject in a practical manner, introducing the student to the fundamentals of creating Windows applications using the features of WPF. It includes coverage of both traditional concepts such as controls and binary resources and new concepts such as XAML, flexible layout, logical resources, dependency properties, and the loosely-coupled command architecture of WPF. The WPF course also covers data binding, styles, templates, skins and themes.
