.NET 3.0 introduced the important new technologies of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Windows Workflow Foundation (WF). Although there were extensions for Visual Studio 2005, there was not yet full-blown tool support. Visual Studio 2008 brings this tool support along with a further update to the .NET Framework, .NET 3.5. This newest version of the Framework also introduces the important data access technology, Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) along with significant enhancements to the C# language, largely intended to support LINQ.
This three-day hands-on course introduces these new technologies to the experienced developer who has a good working knowledge of .NET and Visual Studio 2005. Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided. The student will receive a complete set of notes and all the programming examples.
