John Blumenauer's Blog .NET Development and Community Nuggets

FredNUG is pleased to announce that we have another great speaker lined up for November.  On November 18th, we’ll start with pizza and social networking at 6:30 PM.  Then, starting at 7 PM, John Baird will present “Building Silverlight LOB Apps.”  With so many software development teams trying to make the switch from Winforms to WPF/Silverlight, I’m sure this talk will be very useful and informative.

The scheduled agenda is:  

  • 6:30 PM - 7:00 PM - Pizza/Social Networking/Announcements
  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM - Main Topic: Building Silverlight LOB Apps with John Baird 

Main Topic Description:  Take a look at the newest incarnation of UI building tools from MS.  This presentation will look at the basics of WPF/Silverlight.  We will look at switching a program from Winforms to Silverlight and topics including Data Binding, Entity Framework, ADO .Net Data Services, Styles and Themes."
