Petzold WPF Book Sample Conversion Update (Young Joo)

Anthony D. Green [MSFT]

Been a while since I posted Chapter 3 of Petzold’s WPF book converted to VB.   In case you missed it, Patrick started working on this project which I took over early this month.  Anyway, I am very excited to tell you about progress we’ve been able to make so far.

First, we now have a separate article page, Applications = Code + Markup (Charles Petzold) Visual Basic Code Sample, where you can grab all the converted sample packages.  We will be updating this article page as we continue with our conversion project. We did this to make it easier for you to find all sample codes without looking through old blog posts.

Remember that I told you about extra help we got, Evan Lim from Foothill Community College?  Well, Evan is a trooper and he finished converting Ch. 4 – 12.  They are posted in the article page now!  Thanks Evan!

Another exciting news.  Ged Mead, a VB MVP, has also decided to join the project recently and he already started working on converting several chapters.  With Evan and Ged working together, I think we will be able to finish converting the entire book very soon.

By the way, I would like to know if this project is being helpful to you guys.  Are you guys actually looking at the converted sample code while reading the book?  Does it help to have both C# and VB code available?
