The only Windows Presentation Foundation course in Udemy!
Make money creating desktop apps and User Controls!
Desktop apps are still a very important request from big companies, and in this course you will find what you need to start creating those companies' apps!
User Controls are also something valuable (see Telerik) for WPF (and Windows / Windows Phone) developers, they could be your clients as well!
This course walks you through the complete creation of a WPF app, which means that it covers every aspect needed for you to end up with a full app.
This course includes the very basics: what WPF is and getting things ready, this to make sure that you are set to create apps along with me.
This course includes the foundamentals of UI design, from defining elements, to stilish them. This is very important in your way to creating better UIs in a faster more efficient manner.
I included Data Binding inside this course, this way you will understand one of the key features of XAML, which helps you create more flexible-easier to mantain code. If you work in a team with designers, Data Binding will make them love you.
This course includes creating custom User Controls, for you (and designers in your team) to create UIs more precisely. This in particular could also be seen as a business itself (creating UserControls).
This course includes animations, this helps you as a developer, create stunning user experiences. Creating apps with great user expiriences makes your users happy, which leads to more users, which leads to more money.
This course now includes a very important chapter about the design pattern for XAML projects: MVVM, so you can create projects with efficient, ready-to-test, easy-to-mantain code.
Enrol in this course now, and you could be making more money out of desktop apps or User Controls as soon as next week.
By the end of this course you will be able to answer all this correctly (hopefully), but rightnow, at the very beginning, how much do you know?
Create your first WPF project
Understand how XAML is defined, and define the most commonly used controls.
Use elements that can hold many more elements inside of them.
Styling the elements in XAML
Learn how to connect the UI to the C# code and create event handlers.
Starting with some C#
Define the looks of your UserControl
Add some properties and define your own UserControl in a Window UI
How to use Data Binding with a UserControl.
Use the animations from the code behind
There are some things you should be able to answer before diving into details about MVVM. Check if you should move foreward or take another look at the previous video.
Understand what Interfaces are, which are necesary for the MVVM implementation and what is it that they do.
Let's implement the INotifyPropertyChanged interface and see it in action...again, just in case you still had doubts.
Learn how events are changed to commands in the MVVM pattern.
I am a Software Engineer, Xamarin Certified Mobile developer. But I'm also studying Finance and Banking.
I have developed mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows. But I've also designed marketing strategies for some local businesses and my own company.
I'm a cofunder of an Internet of Things startup, in which my role goes from software developer, to cloud expert, to project lead, to inventor. But my role also goes to Chief Financial Officer, to CEO, to marketing, to designer and sometimes even teacher.
I have learnt a lot in school and at work about software development, cloud computing and the internet of things. But I've also learnt in my new school and during my amazing journey creating startups and small businesses about finance, banking, marketing, design, leadership and other very interesting stuff.
Above all however. I am human and I'm here to try to make the world a better place in any way I can, one is creating Internet of Things devices that will make life better, another is teaching stuff so you can be better at work, or even create your own company!
