Charlotte Code Camp 2008 was great

May 19, 2008

On Saturday Karl Shifflett and I gave an all-day “WPF for Line-Of-Business Applications” track at the Charlotte code camp. We had a very good turn out, and a lot of fun. The number of people in the sessions who are already using WPF in their business’s applications is much higher than last year. WPF is starting to gain traction in the “real world.”

We attempted to record the sessions, but ran into some technical difficulties that we didn’t have time to troubleshoot and fix. Next time we give the presentation, we will try to record it again.

Here are my presentation materials. Sorry, but I cannot include the demo project for the second session (don’t ask why, it’s complicated…): My Presentation Materials

When you download the file, change the extension from .DOC to .ZIP and then decompress it.

Also, thanks to Infragistics for flying me down to North Carolina and supplying so many great hand-outs for the attendees. Thanks to Microsoft for buying so many awesome meals!! Also, thanks to Karl for organizing the WPF for LOB track, and the amazingly fun night out on the town afterwards. Saturday night was an AWESOME experience for everyone! 😀

WPF for LOB track at Charlotte Code Camp

May 16, 2008

On Saturday May 17th, 2008 (i.e. tomorrow) Karl Shifflett and I will be giving an all-day presentation about using WPF to create line-of-business (LOB) applications. So if you are anywhere near Charlotte, North Carolina, and want to learn about WPF for LOB, stop on by! It’s free to register and attend.

You can read more about it here. Karl has posted his excellent demo application, which will be the focal point of his three sessions here. I will post my presentation material directly after it finishes, since some of my material will be created during the sessions.
