If you want to learn a new technology, there’s no better way to go about it than to pore over the source of a real application. Nine months ago we commissioned Vertigo Software to create a reference sample for WPF and Windows Vista, and at MIX we unveiled Family.Show to the world. This application is beautiful both as source code and as running software – and it’s free to download. Dr Sneath sat down with Scott Stanfield, Alan Le and Paul Osburn to find out more about how they built the application and the lessons they learnt in creating it. Check out the MIX session too!
