Last week I was at the developer week conference in Germany / Nürnberg. It was a great conference with fantastic people and great sessions.
I gave two talks:
- S.O.L.I.D.-principles for C# Developers
- Test Driven Development and MVVM: How to write testable ViewModels
To push events into Azure Event Hub you can use the Nuget-package WindowsAzure.ServiceBus (https://www.nuget.org/packages/WindowsAzure.ServiceBus/). That package works pretty straight forward, but there’s one problem:
Sometimes you want a TextBlock to just display one line. For example if you have a huge virtualized ListView that contains many data items and in the DataTemplate you’re using a TextBlock. When the TextBlock has different height, the virtualization leads to some not so nice behavior when scrolling: (more…)
Sometimes you need to have an application running in the background. Then you don’t want your MainWindow to be visible all the time. Instead you just want to have an icon in the notification area that allows the user to open up the MainWindow and to exit the application. In WPF you can do this easily with the help of Windows Forms’ NotifyIcon-class.
In 2006 I started working with the first preview versions of the Windows Presentation Foundation with my Trivadis fellow Christoph Pletz. We wrote 2007 the very first German article about MVVM and 2008 I published my first book with the title “Windows Presentation Foundation – the ultimate handbook”.
Thanks to all who joined my sessions at TechDays in Basel. Also a big thanks to Microsoft Switzerland for organizing this great and successful event. I really enjoyed the two days of networking with awesome people.

Wow, on 1st of July I’ve received my very first Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award. I received it in the area “Client Development”.
Thanks to all the people out there in the .NET/C#/XAML-community, thanks to all the readers of my books, articles and blog-posts, thanks to the participants of my public talks, thanks to the colleagues at Trivadis and thanks to Microsoft Switzerland for their great support. In the end I want to thank my family and all the friends and people supporting me in any technical and non-technical way. You’re awesome!
