Book of the week: Illustrated WPF

I try to read one book every week, to keep in target for this goal I will do my “post once a week” challenge based on this and keep the Civilization 5 achievements for my “post once a day” challenge.

This week book review:

Illustrated WPF

by Daniel Solis
Apress © 2009 (530 pages) Citation
“Presenting a concise but thorough, visual presentation of WPF, this book demonstrates new concepts for laying out pages and displaying graphics in a way that makes them easier to understand and retain.”

I enjoyed reading the book, it really has a lot of illustrations, author mention in the book that is for intermediate to advanced level but I think is more beginners-intermediate. First half of the book introduce to foundation concepts of WPF, clear and very visual.

Second half of the book talks about more advanced concepts, like graphics, animation and audio video.

Exercises are simple to follow and to reproduce and there is not a big singe application used through all chapters which is good if you are looking for “recipes” to solve particular problem.

I will keep if for future references.
