WPF Blogs

WPF blogs from Microsoft and ex-Microsoft guys/gals primarily (as well as guys that know their way around the Microsoft):

And here are blogs by ex-Microsoft people (sad, that they are not at MS anymore):

  • notstatic.com by Robby Ingebretsen – nice things. Has not been updated recently, but now it is picking up again. Check his Kaxaml replacement of XamlPad.
  • fortes.com by Filipe Fortes – few demos and screencasts, mostly mix06-related
  • jfo’s coding by Jessica Fosler – many samples, snippets, tips, etc.

Channel 9

  1. I agree I don’t post code for some of the interesting posts only because it has some proprietary stuff…but generally that gets refactored and I eventually post the code.

    Some such examples include GlassWindow, Drag Drop Library.

    Hopefully that would change in the future :)


  2. Pavan, it is not a problem! :) In any case you are hinting toward the right direction, and that is worth something. If on top of that there is a way to get the source code – that’s a bonus. Thanks.

  3. Thanks, I was looking for these links..WPF seems very interesting.
