I ventured on my long and perilous journey into learning WPF a few months ago now, after reading various articles, skimming a book and creating simple example applications AKA 'knobbing about' I started converting a little Access DB I wrote to track my trips to the Gym.

Anyway, progress so far:

I've created an SQL Server backend, then used Entity Framework as my Data Access Layer utilising LINQ.
I've coded up all the Models and Data Access logic, written Unit Tests and tested the same.

Now I've started the WPF side of things, I've got a Fluent Ribbon on my main window which opens up tabs (currently blank) for the main content via Commands etc, and I've implemented a little a settings window which implements IDataErrorInfo/Commands/Data Binding etc, it's nice to see a small example working in full.

This is all using (or trying at best to use) MVVM (not Cinch/Prism or one of the many other flavours - I'll save those for after I've finished this app as I’ll have some experience under my belt to better understand their inner workings).

So, now I've started WPF - wow, I'm staggered by just how huge this framework is - it's unbelievable – I mean, I knew it was big before I started, but it’s bigger than anything I could have imagined; and dare I say it, a little unintuitive at times? Unsure | :~

All I can say is thank god for Google!!

It’s good to see that all the problems I’ve had so far have already been encountered by others at some point, or some kind fellow has put the time and effort into writing an article about how a particular feature works.

Overall though, its good fun!
