Book Recommendation: Applications = Code + Markup, by Charles Petzold

I learned to program for Windows by reading Charles Petzold's "Programming Windows" and it is one of the most enjoyable technical book I ever had the pleasure to read, so when I decided I want to buy an actual book about WPF I just ordered "Application = Code + Markup".

If you just want to quickly jump into programming with WPF then this isn't the book you're looking for, the book doesn't even introduce XAML until the second half of the book.

This is an in depth book that explains how things work behind the scenes, and I think it's a must read for anyone doing WPF development.

I suggest you find a tutorial on the internet to get started quickly, and read this book cover to cover to really understand WPF.

Buy this book on Amazon:Applications = Code + Markup: A Guide to the Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (Pro - Developer) .
