Desc:      An in-depth lecture style training to teach attendees how to style WPF & SilverLight business applications

CODE Training and EPS Software will be holding an intensive 1-day lecture style boot-camp on styling WPF & SilverLight apps specifically designed for developers of business applications who wish to learn the latest Microsoft .NET technologies. While templates and styling is often perceived as something of importance for consumer-facing web sites, this session is focused on styling with a focus on business apps, with the goal being to not just create professional looking applications, but - more importantly - building applications productively and in a maintainable and reusable fashion. The training class will be held at our offices in Houston, Texas as well as online via GoToMeeting.  After the class, attendees will receive the PowerPoint slides, the code samples and videos of each class as reference materials.

    9:00 – 10:15 Styling Basics
    Introducing general concepts for styling WPF & SilverLight business apps.
    10:15 – 10:30 BREAK
    10:30 – 12:00 Control Styling and Templating
    This session introduces advanced styling techniques for controls and other UI elements. The emphasis is on creating functional controls such as modified textboxes and buttons, and also on advanced control styling, such as styling lists and tab controls for amazing results that can be produced extremely quickly and at a high degree of reuse and maintainability.
    12:00 – 13:30 LUNCH BREAK
    13:30 – 14:45 Advanced Layout styling for Productive Business Application Development
    WPF and Silverlight are the only UI environments that enable advanced automatic layout for business applications, allowing developers to focus mosly on business specific things rather than pixel-perfect positioning of elements. This session provides an in-depth look at existing WPF/SL layout elements and then proceeds to create custom layout panels with amazing results.
    14:45 – 15:00 BREAK
    15:00 – 16:30 Graphic Design for Developers
    Developers aren't designers and they probably shouldn't be. However, developers are still asked to create professional looking applications. Most developers fail embarassingly in this task and that is rapidly becoming non-acceptable. However, basic design skills are not based on artistic talent, but these skills can be learned just like other development techniques, and this session sets out to teach exactly this skill.
    16:30 – 16:45 BREAK
    16:45 – ?? Ask the Experts / Q&A
    Got questions? Got a WPF or Silverlight application you are ready to build? Ask the experts and hit the ground running!
