Abstract:

Introducing WPF in a firm large or small brings a set of new challenges: Learning curve, new tools, new workflows and roles, new collaboration designer-developer, etc... 2 years ago, Siemens Building Technologies decided to take a close look at WPF, and to use it in a new project. With the help of top experts in the field, in and out of Microsoft, we identified some of the challenges and did our best to find appropriate responses. In this presentation, we will talk about technical but also social implications of using WPF, and how to make the transition as smooth as possible. We will also see some of the advantages of using WPF over classic technologies like WinForms or MFC.
