Training Day: Creating WPF Line of Business Applications (M-V-VM) Using C# and VB.NET

I’m very pleased to announce a one day training event, Creating WPF Line of Business Applications (M-V-VM) Using C# and VB.NET.  This is your opportunity to spend a day learning the WPF UI Design Pattern, Model-View-ViewModel.

Jaime Rodriguez, Beth Massi  and I will be conducting the training and lab time.



Saturday, Jan 31 2009 from 8:00am – 6:00pm


Hewlett Packard Building 48
19447 Pruneridge Ave., OakRoom
Cupertino, CA 95014

Minutes from San Jose International airport.


For the labs, bring your laptop with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 SP1 installed. 


This all day training event is designed to teach developers how to create WPF Line of Business Applications that can easily be Unit Tested. The Model-View-ViewModel (M-V-VM) pattern will be used as a guideline for the application structure. Many aspects of WPF LOB programming will be covered including validation, logging, UI entry error notification, exception handling, layered application architecture, Unit Testing and a short introduction to memory profiling.

At the end of the day, developers should have a good grasp on M-V-VM and how to create their own testable WPF LOB applications.

For the lab time, we will provide an application walkthrough that attendees can complete during the lab time. Walkthrough will be in C# and VB.NET.

Additionally, if you have a current WPF application and want to move it to M-V-VM bring it with you on your laptop. You can get started on the project during the lab. This way you’ll have hands on help to get to up and running.
