Print of WPF-book will start next week

As I promised in my last post, here are some infos about my nearly finished book project:

Last weekend I made checks on the first galley proof of my german WPF-book. Yesterday I got the second galley proof, the corrected one. The second galley proof I’ve checked yesterday evening and today. The book will have about 1125 pages filled up with pure Windows Presentation Foundation and will be printed at the end of next week.

Last week I saw that the book is already listed under the WPF-books on WindowsClient.NET. Who ever linked it up, thanks a lot for doing so:


As the corrections are made and the book will be printed next week, the upcoming weekend will be the first totally free weekend for me since one year. Two weeks ago I got a red card in a soccer match, so I’m not allowed to play the last game. So next weekend is really totally free, no soccer game and no book-writing. :-)

So what should I do this upcoming weekend? I could start writing another WPF- or Silverlight-article. But no, on that first free weekend for such a long time I won’t do that. I tell you what I’m going to do, if the weather won’t be totally bad:

About one month ago I bought a new bike (on the picture below), so I’ll test it on a tour with my family next weekend. There are several mountains and single trails directly around our home, where you can jump and ride with a lot of fun. As I know there are also many bikers at Trivadis (the company I’m working for), maybe I’ll meet some of them in a race down the hills through the great black forest

    Hi Thomas

    Du bist mit dem Bike jederzeit herzlich willkommen in Bern. Schau Dir mal meine “Heimstrecke” am Gurten an: ;-)

    Cheers, Stefan

    Hi GMS,

    danke. Ja, die Ruhepause eines Wochenendes gönn’ ich mir mal. :-)
    Freu Dich auf’s Buch, nach dem Urlaub wird’s bestimmt bald da sein. Es hat jetzt final ca. 1125 Seiten und erklärt auch Randthemen wie UIAutomation.

    Ich wünsche Dir gute Erholung,
