WPF/Blend Hockey Example
I have now used my WPF/Blend Hockey example at several events. This is a pretty cool example, not just because it shows how one can quickly (and without much artistic talent) create a decent looking WPF UI, but also because it uses a real-life middle tier, so it isn't just a contrived example. The downside is that I haven't been able to give the complete example away so far. I have been able to give the WPF part away, which enabled people to look at all the code, but I haven't been able to provide the middle tier, so people couldn't actually run the example.
Thanks to Jon Herrell from Coffey Communications, I now have a simplified version of this example that is fully executable. Jon recreated all the required business objects from scratch. The data is now dummy data, but the example now works just fine. Great! Thanks for your help, Jon.
I added two image resources so the individual items actually show images too, and I uploaded it here. Enjoy!
