Presentation: From Zero to XAML

Download From Zero to XAML example code

Abstract:  Windows Presentation Foundation is "the most significant technology to come out of Microsoft. Ever." according to Mark Miller.  We've all seen the demos of Visual Studio 2008 with Blend to create breathtaking UIs, but what is under the hood?  Is WPF useful to the average developer cranking out WinForms applications for internal corporate use?  To answer this question we will take a close look at WPF code - without Design Mode or Blend.  Warning: This is a no Technotainment Zone!

(this presentation is an updated version of WTF is WPF?)
