WPF has a reputation for a steep learning curve. Robby Ingebretsen and Jaime Rodriguez do remember back to the early Avalon days when things were hard: no tools, no docs, no sleep. Today, it is much easier: the tools are much better and there are a lot of lessons learned. This workshop will summarize their combined eight years of WPF experience into an actionable list of tips & tricks and good practices around organizing your projects, XAML guidelines, collaboration models, getting the most out of the tools, architecture patterns, etc. The workshop is aimed at intermediate WPFers, a little XAML experience is required.
