I've just built myself a nice Access DB to keep track of my Gym workouts to keep me focused on the gym (always on an eye on progression not stagnation and boredom).
During the build I sidetracked to build myself a little WinForms app to auto generate some Access VBA Class code rather than having to write it all out for another Access DB (which I had an idea about).

Easy peasy, whacked it together in virtually no time at all...then it struck me...I have absolutely no idea about WPF!

So, my new mission, which I accept, well sort of accept, sort of dread - is to learn WPF!!!
(Which I will only be able to do in my 'spare' time outside of work, seeing as that I don't do C# in my day to day stuff).

So, I've just bought "WPF 4.5 Unleashed" by Adam Nathan, and shall begin be working my way through that - with the ambition to turn my Access DB into a WPF application, and maybe to ditch the Access backend altogether replaced by something that I haven't decided yet.

Anyone got any quick tips, gotchas, helpful hints, 'beware of' or any other words of wisdom before I begin my fraught and perilous journey??
