Working on my first Pluralsight course – Html for the XAML Developer

It’s official, I have been commissioned to author my first Pluralsight course and I am pretty excited.  My first course is going to be ‘Html for the XAML Developer’.  The objective for this course is to walk a XAML developer (Sliverlight, WPF, WP7, etc) through the process of porting a Silverlight application over to HTML.  I will accomplish this by breaking our reference application down into bit size chunks and rebuilding it in HTML.  In each step along the way I am going to compare our XAML code to our new HTML code in order to allow the view to understand how their existing knowledge can be applied to HTML.

In the course I am going to use the following tools:

  • jQuery
  • Knockout
  • Typescript
  • ASP.Net MVC
  • ASP.Net Web Api
  • Many, many others

 

Here is a screenshot of part of our reference XAML application

Here is what we expect to build via HTML

I am planning to have this course go live sometime in May so if your a pluralight subscriber please be sure to check it out when it does.

Till next time,

A little too big of a project to be broken down into dime-sized chunks?

And on a related note, especially if you are a Xaml developer, you should be checking out Durandal. Let me know if you want a walkthrough.
