View Thread: Is Build just for Web or is WPF just that dead?
  • User profile image

    I know that the current favored UI development API is Win RT (or Modern Applications ...) and that WPF (and Silverlight) are "out of favor".  But I was a bit surprised to note "WPF" is not an option in the search tags for the Build Conference.

    Now I don't follow conferences that close, but I know some are themed (ie "Web").  Is Build a "Web" conference?

    Or is WPF just that dead to new feature development that there are no courses in that 4 day conference that touch on it enough to even warrant adding a tag for it?

    Maybe I should not be surprised after so many things have been killed off.  I know Microsoft can be brutal to "out of favor" stuff.

    Maybe there is nothing new in WPF so there is nothing more to train on?
