WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) is a .NET framework with which applications and user interfaces can be conveniently created. Due to the strict separation of graphic interface and business logic, applications can be created quickly and easily. Furthermore, multimedia content, for example movies, graphics, audio files and 3D models can be integrated into your application.

With WPF you can create versatile applications that can be rendered with DirectX thanks to hardware acceleration. In short: You can create applications in the highest graphic quality. If you want to create your own software, tools or applications, which should also be visually convincing, then this workshop is the right choice for you.
