Applications = Code + Markup (Charles Petzold) Visual Basic Code Sample

Anthony D. Green [MSFT]

Charles Petzold‘s latest book, Applications = Code + Markup: A Guide to the Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation, is the best WPF book available right now.  Unfortuantely, all code samples in the book are written in C#.  In order to help VB developers trying to learn about WPF, we are working with a couple of VB experts to convert all samples appearing in the book to VB.  As we finish converting each chapter, this page will be updated with a link to sample code package.

Quick info about two experts helping us with this.

  • Evan Lim is currently teaching WPF & Blend courses at Foothill Community College in Los Altos, CA.
  • Ged Mead, VB MVP, is currently based in an idyllic lochside location in the West of Scotland and is currently involved in an ever-widening range of VB.NET development projects, which include research for a proposed .NET book as well as writing articles, organising and creating online courses in .NET technologies.
