WPF Tutorial: Great Site for Learning WPF

WPF Tutorial, by Christian Moser -

I try to keep my finger on the pulse of what technical skills employers are looking for in a particular IT discipline so I can help guide my students with their learning plan to prepare for the work force. One of the technical skills that seems to be in demand with employers looking for .NET developers is WPF. As a student or a professional who's looking to build a skill set, it may be difficult to find a course teaching WPF that's affordable. It may also be time consuming and expensive to find any self-study materials to learn WPF. Christian Moser, a software developer from Switzerland, has solved that problem.

WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) - a graphical subsystem for rendering user interfaces in Windows-based applications.

Mr. Moser has developed a web site for students (and established IT professionals) who want to learn WPF. His site, WPF Tutorial, is a well-organized, beautifully designed, "one-stop shop" site that provides students with information that they need to learn WPF. Some of the features of the site include:

  • Tutorials to get started with WPF.

  • Informative articles about tools and books that help students learn WPF.

  • My personal favorite - "Learn WPF in two Weeks". Note: this tutorial appears to be incomplete, but there are enough exercises to get started

If you are interested in learning WPF, visit Christian's site by clicking on the link at the top of this post.
