WPF Training, anyone?

The team over at Framework Training approached me recently about putting together a training course for WPF and possibly UI Automation. I’ve been giving it some thought, but I need your help.

What would you like to see in a WPF course? Or perhaps, more to the point, what do you think your non-blog-reading colleagues would benefit from hearing about? Are there any areas you can think of that are not covered by existing courses?

I’m guessing that the world doesn’t need another WPF 101. But people might like some help on more advanced topics, such as using the MVVM pattern, extending the declarative powers of WPF with Triggers and Behaviors, or even learning how to write robust tests against their UI using the UIAutomation API.

So, over to you. The comment box is open … now!

And if you think the world doesn’t need another WPF training course, tell me what you would like to see. And feel free to give me the benefit of your wisdom on how training course in general should or should not be run.

Perhaps an incentive would help you put fingers to keyboard? I’ll give a £25 Amazon voucher to the person who (in my judgement) leaves the most helpful suggestions.

Update: My thanks (and, more concretely, a £25 gift voucher!) go to Jedrzej Sztompka who emailed in a copious list of suggestions. But don’t let that put you off: I’ll keep the offer open for anybody else who gets in touch with significant useful ideas.

Hi sam!

I write in wpf 3 years, and realy there is many topics on WPF has been a bit corny, troubling issues I encountered last year touched less Architecture and the rest of the UI that important components of development projects.Namely, how to build controls correctly, when you need a customControl and when enough to create template, when should I add to usercontol viewmodel and when should I create a wrapper, complex analysis of the toolkit controls, controls, components, etc.
