PDC 2005 - Lap Around WPF ("Avalon")

PRS305: Lap Around Windows Presentation Foundation ("Avalon")
Presenter: Rob Relyea, Lead Program Manager, WPF Team
September 13, 4:15 PM - 5:30 PM, Hall EF

Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly codename "Avalon") is Microsoft's new presentation technology for Windows that provides an integrated way to interact with the user interface, documents, and media technolgies used in your application. This session introduces many of the core concepts in the Windows Presentation Foundation programming model, such as XAML, layout, controls, resources, styling, and databinding. Using Visual Studio, we build a Windows Presentation Foundation based application from scratch. If you have never seen an introduction to Windows Presentation Foundation, this session is for you.
