WPF Succinctly: my first ebook published by Syncfusion

      It's with great pleasure that I let you know about my ebook, WPF Succinctly, published by the great team over at Syncfusion.  This book is a part of their succinctly series which offers a wide variety of free ebooks on the hottest software development topics.  I'm proud of the book and especially of the final product.  I tried to start with the basics (controls, xaml basics) and then work my way up to more advanced topics like MVVM and Commands.  The book is full of examples for you to follow along. I'm currently working on a following up to WPF succinctly called "Orubase Succinctly" which is a book on Syncfusion's mobile hybrid platform.  You can learn more about the product on the official Orubase page. Don't forget to check out the other FREE books in the succinctly series here.  Also, I'd like to recommend that you check out the trial versions of the Syncfusion's essential studio suite of controls.  The suite includes top notch controls for ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, WPF, Silverlight, Windows phone, WinRT, WinForms and more.   I would love any feedback regarding the book.  And please be on the lookout for Orubase succinctly which I should be wrapping up soon. Until next time, Buddy James

Prism 4.1 release for .NET 4.5 and Windows 8

This is a short post but I'm happy to let you know that the Microsoft patterns and practices team are currently testing a new release of Prism, the composite user interface framework.  There are plans for the new release to support Windows 8 WinRT applications as well as .NET applications. I'm happy regarding this release because I was worried that this project may have been abandoned like Silverlight.   Read about it here.   Thanks   kick it on DotNetKicks.com
