Watch the video of the session! (Running time: 1 hour)
- By Billy Hollis
You've seen enough Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) demo applications. You're ready to see apps that you can use on the job — to understand the real advantages of WPF. This session presents two simplified WPF apps that meet real-world needs: a browser-based shopping application and an RSS reader with a scalable, interactive user interface. You'll analyze the technologies that made these apps possible and discuss some obstacles you may face while completing your first real-world WPF app.
