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. 🙂  


Petzold strikes again!

(Or, rather, struck again last summer.)  I just found Jeff’s post about receiving a book from Petzold complete with witty comments.  I was also a lucky recipient of an autographed book, so I thought I’d share what Petzold had to say to me: Funny stuff!  (He’s referring to this discussion, in case you missed it.)  I…


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…


The WPF Challenge

Check it out.  From the man who thinks I use too many exclamation points!  (It’s true.  I like exclamation points and parentheses!)


WPF Unleashed is flying off the shelves… even the shelf in my office!

I suppose I should be flattered.  It seems that someone swiped my copy of WPF Unleashed out of my office last week!  (Nothing else appears to be missing.)  It does have a few identifying marks on it, so the perpetrator better be careful! At any rate, thanks again to those folks who have given glowing…


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…


WPF Unleashed!

It’s official… my WPF book now has a title, a temporary cover, and is listed on Amazon: The details aren’t published yet, but this book will have a feature that I think is quite cool… and I’ve never seen it done in any other book.  So stay tuned! I was surprised to read that it will be…


Aero Glass inside a WPF Window

Recently Tim shared some code for extending Windows Vista Aero “Glass” inside a Windows Forms window.  It sounds like he’s eventually planning on showing this with WPF (among other things).  I also looked into this for my upcoming WPF book, and I couldn’t wait to share the results of my little WPF glass experiment!  Sorry, Tim,…


WPF Book Update (and SD West 2006)

Long time no blog, but I’ve got a good excuse.  Since my last post, I’ve become a father!  This event, of course, made me seriously doubt (even more than usual) the wisdom of writing another book. Here’s a quote from my wife: “You wrote a book during our first year of marriage.  You’re writing a…
