The WPF Challenge has been changed!

I have modified the rules of The WPF Challenge.  You no longer are required to submit a link to a live XBAP.  Instead, you can now post a link to a .ZIP file which contains your WPF application source code (XBAP or desktop).  Do not submit an EXE.  I am concerned that people will have a difficult time finding a Web host which supports XBAP files on their servers, and I don’t want people to not submit based on a mundane roadblock.

To recap, you can submit any kind of WPF application now.  It does not have to be an XBAP!

The floodgates have opened!  Let the mayhem begin…

    Which means, source code is a must?

  2. Josh Smith says:


    Yes, source code is a must, unless you host the app as an XBAP. I don’t want to download some random EXE file that someone posts. The last thing I want to do is get a virus or trojan because of the WPF Challenge. 🙂

    Maybe, Source Code can be optionally not made public?

    No, the app I am working on will have it’s source made public, but asking since am just curious…

  4. Josh Smith says:


    I want anyone to be able to run an app submitted into the Challenge. If it is made available as a desktop app, then the source code must be made available so that people don’t run the risk of getting a virus.

    Okay, Gotcha! Thanks!
