  • Why move from WinForms to WPF? Pros vs. (almost no) con's.
  • WPF architecture overview: what to know, what to embrace, etc.
  • Pattern focus: ViewModel
  • WPF vs. Silverlight (strictly from a feature perspective): What advantages and disadvantages are there?
  • Introduction to CompositeWPF (this one goes to 11).
