Description

At the core of developing a data-driven WPF application is a thorough knowledge of how to use the MVVM Pattern and Entity Framework. In this course, Building an Enterprise App with WPF, MVVM, and Entity Framework Code First, you will learn the skills you need to create high-quality enterprise applications with WPF. First, you'll learn about typical scenarios like communicating between different ViewModels, detecting model changes, and handling many-to-many relations. Next, you'll learn all about creating a tabbed user interface. Finally, you'll explore implementing optimistic concurrency and styling your application. When you're finished with this course, you will have a deep understanding of WPF, MVVM, and Entity Framework that will help you immensely as you move forward and create your own data-driven enterprise application.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Thomas Claudius Huber and welcome to my course Building an Enterprise App with WPF, MVVM and Entity Framework Code First. I am a Microsoft MVP for Windows Development and I have a passion for user interfaces. To create a solid enterprise application with WPF you have to know about different technologies and patents and how they are used together, like for example entity framework, MVVM and dependency injection. This course covers the full stack that you need to know to build an enterprise application with WPF that uses MVVM and that connects to a secret server database with entity framework. Some of the major topics that we will cover include applying the MVVM pattern, setting up a database with entity framework code first, detecting model changes with entity framework's DB context, validating user input with data annotations and implementing optimistic concurrency to handle multi-user conflicts. By the end of this course you will know how to build a data driven WPF enterprise application with a tech-user interface and a modern and dark design. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the C# language. If you know already about XAML would be great, but it is not necessary. We will start in Visual Studio with find new project so even without XAML knowledge you should be able to follow this course. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about building a real world WPF application with the course Building an Enterprise App with WPF, MVVM, and Entity Framework Code First at Pluralsight.
