WPF 4 Unleashed!

I’ve been seriously neglecting my blog, but I just wanted to point out that WPF 4 Unleashed is now available! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0672331195?ie=UTF8&tag=adamnathannet-20 Maybe someday soon I’ll explain the differences between the two books it in more depth. 🙂  


Today’s ego boosts

PC World has just named Popfly one of the “25 Most Innovative Products of the Year” WPF Unleashed has just been nominated for a 2007 Jolt Product Excellence Award, which recognizes “the most innovative, trend-making, ahead-of-the-curve products” Obviously I’m really pleased and grateful about both of these developments, as both of these products have been a…


Silverlight 1.0 Unleashed!

It’s now official and on Amazon!  As indicated by the (temporary) cover, it will be in full color, just like WPF Unleashed!  As always, take the release date with a grain of salt because I haven’t even written the whole book yet, but rest assured that it won’t be out until after Silverlight 1.0 is…

WPF Unleashed is now available!

I got my hands on two copies while on vacation and gave them to family members, but now that I’m back home I need to wait for the rest of my copies to arrive.  I snooped around the blogosphere and found two references to it: Adam Nathan’s new WPF book is awesome! WPF Unleashed -…


WPF Unleashed: The perfect stocking stuffer!

This weekend I entered the final phase of tweaking and reviewing, so WPF Unleashed is on the verge of being printed!  The book is now scheduled to be available right before the new year (December 27, according to Amazon).  Although this isn’t quite in time for most of the upcoming holidays, perhaps you now know…
