Desc:      An in-depth lecture style training to teach attendees how to build real world business applications using WPF

CODE Training and EPS Software will be holding an intensive 1-day lecture style boot-camp seminar on WPF specifically designed for developers of business applications who wish to learn the latest Microsoft .NET technologies. This class is designed for people who have at least a rough idea of what WPF is all about (we recommend that attendees who are totally new to WPF also attend the "Intro to WPF & Silverlight" class, which is held the previous day). 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. 

This class is part of our "XAML Week" Event. Classes can be booked as individual days or you can book the entire week of related classes at a significant discount.

9:00 – 10:15 WPF Business Applications - Part 1
Introducing general concepts for building business apps in WPF. This session provides a very brief review of WPF concepts and paradigms. However, the majority of this session is spent on creating a solution setup that works for real-world WPF projects. This includes not just the setup of the UI aspects, but also other elements such as view models and access to middle tiers or services. The session creates a real-world setup designed to accomodate business scenarios which involve typical data scenarios (handling of data in view models and also data binding in the UI). User interaction is discussed in detail as well.
10:15 – 10:30 BREAK
10:30 – 12:00 WPF Business Applications - Part 2
This session is a continuation of the the previous session.
12:00 – 13:30 LUNCH BREAK
13:30 – 14:45 Developing WPF Applications Productively
WPF is the most productive UI development environment. Period! However, many developers do not perceive it as that due to incorrect preconceived notions. This session introduces advanced techniques that will make the attendee a developer who is not just productive, but will also build applications that are both of very high quality and highly maintainable and reusable.
14:45 – 15:00 BREAK
15:00 – 16:30 Prototyping, Designing and Testing Business Apps
Should we start developing from the database up, or from the user interface down? In this session we’ll tackle that question, and present an approach that works well when building business applications. We’ll go over prototyping, writing presentation logic from a TDD (Test-Driven Development) angle, waiting until the last responsible moment to implement a database, etc.
16:30 – 16:45 BREAK
16:45 – ?? Ask the Experts / Q&A
Got questions? Got an application you are ready to build? Ask the experts and hit the ground running!
