Continuing the community interviews from our Italian Visual Basic MVP Alessandro Del Sole, this time we interview Patrick Dengler. You can take a look at the Visual Basic Team page for pictures and bios and visit the home page of the Visual Basic Developer Center for a link to all these interviews as well.
I’ve attached the chapter 2 Visual Basic.NET code for the ongoing project of converting Peztold’s Applications = Code + Markup book on WPF proramming. I am happy to say that Young from my team is going to help with this effort so you will see these chapters coming out more frequently.
A few weeks ago I mentioned I was working on a side project. Well, then the soccer, tennis, and school season hit and..well I won’t tell you the rest. What I had started to do was take all of the samples in Charles Petzold’s book Applications = Code + Markup and rewrite them in VB for publication to the VB community.
I can’t believe it’s already Sunday. I’ve been spending all weekend (and the last few weeks) as a returning member of the VB team emersing myself in the product, specifically getting my head around how I would use VB today to build the types of solutoins when I was writing departmental applications,
I can’t tell you how excited I am to return to the Visual Basic team after almost eight years of absence! I spent much time working in groups around Microsoft including games, office and business solutions. But in each of these areas I focussed primarily on enabling developer scenarios.
