WINDOWS PRESENTATION FOUNDATION USING C# (VS 2008)
.NET Training Overview

This course introduces Windows Presentation Foundation or WPF (“Avalon”), the new .NET technology from Microsoft for building rich Windows applications. It was originally part of .NET 3.0, previously called “WinFX” by Microsoft. WPF includes an XML-based markup language for defining program elements, Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML). WPF applications can be created using only code or a combination of code and XAML pages. This course covers the essentials of WPF, providing an orientation to this technology and a firm foundation for creating applications. The course is current to .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008.
