Business apps live on data. In this demo-focused talk, we'll show how we've made building data-centric business applications in WPF easier with the new DataGrid, Ribbon, and Calendar/DatePicker controls. As we build the application, we'll also give you a sneak peek at how building data-bound apps will be significantly easier in Visual Studio 2010.
