Build Your First XAML Application (Part 1)

WPF and Silverlight makes it possible to build rich graphical user interfaces, but it doesn't necessarily make it easy. Getting your head around where to start, and how to display information, can be a daunting task. This session gets you started with XAML, and demonstrates creating a working video-player application, using user controls, templates, and more. Not the typical first introduction to XAML, this session actually shows you features you can use now to get started building great applications.
