Course Overview

This Windows Presentation Foundation Using .NET Core training class introduces Windows Presentation Foundation or WPF, the .NET technology from Microsoft for building rich Windows applications. 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 Visual Studio 2019 and the latest versions of.NET Core.

This course is designed to run on .NET Core, an open source and modular implementation of the .NET Framework. As of .NET Core 3.0, it is now very complete and represents the future direction of .NET software from Microsoft, although the classical .NET Framework will continue to be supported. The course also is designed for Windows 10. (Windows 7 is now out of support by Microsoft.) Since WPF uses Windows-specific features, it only supports UI programs running on Windows.
