Great approach as an introduction to WPF
on 24 July 2008
As an intro to WPF I bought myself some books (WPF 24 hours, Essential WPF, WPF Unleashed). The latter two are great books giving lots of in-depth information on WPF how to. WPF in 24 hours takes a different approach with the focus being on developing a WPF application. It does this very well with a light introduction to the Model View Presenter pattern. This sets you off on the right tracks on how to structure a WPF application.
The other books I've mentioned above go into a lot more technical detail on WPF and are also essential reading but WPF is vast and it is often difficult to see the wood for the trees. I'll go back to those books later and I'm sure they will ultimately become my standard references, but during the getting started phase I couldn't have wished for a better book than WPF in 24 hours.
