WPF in South Florida

I have been working with WPF for about a year and a half now.  I really enjoy the flexibility that it provides but it does have quite a learning curve when you have been working with WinForms for most of your programming career.

In the past 7 months, I have been given two different WPF applications which were started by other developers but could not get the application to QA or get it out of QA.  Digging into the code, it was pretty easy to see why they were having issues.  They were writing WinForms code with a Xaml front end.  This can have some rather strange and unpredictable behavior.  I decided that I would take some of these issues and create a blog to help out others who are attempting to make the transition to WPF.

This is my first attempt at a blog and comments and advice are always appreciated.  If you have specific questions or topics that you would like to see covered, feel free to contact me.
