In this demo-focused talk, learn how you can get productive quickly building data-centric line-of-business applications in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) using the new DataGrid, Ribbon, and Calendar/DatePicker controls. As we build the application, we highlight how building data-bound applications, and making them look great with resources, will be significantly easier in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. This talk offers a deep dive on how to use WPF to improve some of the most common LOB experiences. Learn how to customise and style controls including DataGrid and Ribbon in order to create a compelling, differentiated user experience, and discover how LOB applications can leverage new Windows 7 features like multitouch. Also learn how to take advantage of a more streamlined deployment experience that is also more intuitive.
