The future of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and what’s coming next

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”.

GUI & Desgin Konferenz – Slides

An der GUI & Design-Konferenz in Nürnberg durfte ich heute zwei Vorträge zu den Themen “Controls in WPF/Silverlight designen und entwickeln” und “Hardwarenahe Programmierung in WPF/Silverlight mit Pixelshadern” halten. Bei Ihnen als Teilnehmer möchte ich mich an dieser Stelle recht herzlich für das grosse Interesse und die Aufmerksamkeit bedanken. Ich hoffe, es hat Ihnen gefallen und Sie konnten das ein oder andere für die Praxis mitnehmen.

Zum Runterladen der versprochenen Slides klicken Sie bitte einfach auf einen der beiden Vorträge:

Viel Spass damit. Falls weitere Fragen auftauchen oder der Code zu den kurzen Live-Demos gewünscht ist, genügt eine kurze Mail an mich. Schreiben Sie mir auch, falls Sie individuelle Trainings oder Consulting im Bereich WPF/Silverlight benötigen: Mail an Thomas

Speaking at GUI & Design Conference in Nürnberg

It has been quiet here for some weeks. After I had finished my Silverlight book I just enjoyed the unfamiliar free time I had on Saturday and Sunday. I just used it for hanging around with my family and friends. Now I’m back in the optimum of work-life-balance. I’m going to start a series of blogposts about building apps with Silverlight for the Web and for Windows Phone 7 in the mid of december. So I hope you’re looking forward to that.

With this post I want to inform you about the GUI&Design-Conference. The conference about GUI and Design has a lot of experts and great sessions to offer. I think it’s a special and great conference that you shouldn’t miss as a UI-Developer or –Designer. It would be great to see you there.

I’ve two sessions. One about Pixelshader-Effects in WPF and Silverlight and one about developing and designing Custom Controls in WPF and Silverlight. Find the conference-website on http://www.gui-design.ppedv.de/ or just click on the image below to join it.
