Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Windows Presentation Foundation 4: Brushes and Colors.
- [Instructor] I hope you've enjoyed learning…about WPF colors and brushes.…Colors are vital to building a great looking application.…Add the useful set of WPF brushes and you've got the tools…for making a good UI.…This course is part of my ongoing series about WPF.…I encourage you to watch the existing WPF courses…in this series and check our online catalogue…for future additions to this series.…Now that you have a handle on the principles of this course,…you'll want to study the other UI frameworks…that utilize XAML.…
Xamarin is cross platform, mobile platform…optimized for the Microsoft.net developer.…It uses C sharp or F sharp for the coding language…and XAML for the UI markup.…In the Windows 10 ecosystem, Universal Windows Applications…are the best choice.…Write one app, run it on desktops, laptops,…Xbox and beta devices and mobile phones.…It used XAML too.…Finally, you should consider learning…Blend for Visual Studio.…This companion application contains the designer tools…that aren't in Visual Studio.…
It's the best place…
