WPF Projects shows you how to build complete, working applications from the ground up as if they were real commercial applications. Each project is begun with a clear breakdown of what you'll achieve, and then good design and architecture patterns are put in place to help you create the best possible result. On top of this, the book will have you writing clear, well-structured, WPF, SQL, and C# code to build a fully working application with an emphasis on reusability, expansion, and maintenance. Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a relatively new and very powerful .NET-based framework for building highly sophisticated desktop applications. It is hugely powerful and capable of creating stunning 2D or 3D user interfaces with ease. The WPF learning curve is a steep one, and it is for this reason that I have created this book. Traditionally, when teaching a new technology, authors will separate the syntax and grammar from the underlying architecture to keep their explanations clean and uncluttered.
This works well up to a point, but there comes a time in everyone's studies when they need to see the full depth of the application-n-tier architecture, C# code, and SQL Server database layers all working together. This book responds to all these needs. Because you'll want to use WPF in different ways to achieve different results, this book contains a wide range of projects covering many different tasks that are architected differently, from building a simple calculator, to a system backup application, to more complex CAD, mapping, and auction site interfaces.
