WPF Resources

Yesterday I pointed out where to download all the bits you need to get into WPF. Today I thought I’d share some good resources on learning WPF.

First off is Todd Miranda’s site Xperimentality http://www.nxtdimension.com/blog/ . Todd is an MVP and has done many of the videos that appear on the Windows Client site.

Speaking of the WindowsClient.Net site, you can find many of those videos at http://windowsclient.net/learn/videos.aspx , just scroll down to the WPF area.

Todd Miranda’s videos on the Expression suite can be found on the Expression Knowledge Center site, http://www.microsoft.com/Expression/kc/resources.aspx?product=web&type=video . There are also videos by others.

Channel 9 has now reached 100 items on WPF: http://channel9.msdn.com/tags/WPF

Mark Miller recently did a DNRTV episode on Custom Controls in WPF, find it at http://www.dnrtv.com/default.aspx?showNum=72 . Also on DNRTV, Brian Noyes did a two parter on WPF, found here http://www.dnrtv.com/default.aspx?showNum=56 and here http://www.dnrtv.com/default.aspx?showNum=59 .

Another great blog is Lester’s WPF Blog, http://blogs.msdn.com/llobo/default.aspx . Lots of good stuff from the author of XAMLPadX, which I recommended yesterday.

Finally, a book recommendation, I’m finding Adam Nathan’s book on WPF to be a really good read. It’s more than technical enough to keep an experienced reading, and all of the code samples are in color! http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Presentation-Foundation-Unleashed-WPF/dp/0672328917/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-4574773-3941455?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1187125352&sr=8-1
