  • A look at the WPF Design Process

  • A review of the WPF/E cross-platform February CTP and discusssion about adding WPF/E video to your website and a discussion of the VC-1 high definition video codec that can be used with WPF/E.

  • Open Question and Answer session for people wishing to enhance their design skills. We will with audience participation attempt to answer questions on popular topics like Photoshop, Expression Design, Macromedia Dreamweaver, Adobe Flex, Xaml, XML, and others.

We highly recommend that you come to the meeting and order something for yourself to eat or drink at the meeting so that we can keep the meeting space available to us for future meetings for free for the group. The food from SideTrack/Frenchies is great and they have a world famous burger that just can’t be beat.
