Windows Presentation Foundation is the new technology for designing forms-based applications from Microsoft. It offers prettier screens, better data-binding, styling of controls and a more web-like development environment.

This course aims to teach you the basics of WPF: laying out forms, binding to data using datagrids and using styles and resources. A full colour courseware manual will be available afterwards for any additional topics which time did not allow us to cover.

The course is ideally suited to people who have some programming or web development background. You will write code using Visual C# within Visual Studio, and link to a SQL Server database.


Although there is no formal pre-requisite for those attending this course, you will find it difficult if you are new to both programming and web development.
