This talk will use a simple (but useful) example application to demonstrate how
Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications can be build using Python.
The talk will begin by explaining key Microsoft .NET concepts and how they can be
accessed though IronPython. Authoring simple eXtensible Application Markup Language
(XAML) interfaces will also be demonstrated, both using Microsoft's GUI tools and by
writting XAML code directly. Finally, the key points in building and packaging a
complete WPF application will be illustrated.
Avalon, also known as Windows Presentation Foundation (or WPF), is Microsoft's next
generation graphical subsystem. This talk will demonstrate how IronPython can be used
to write graphically rich applications using this emerging technology.
