Hello world

August 8, 2006

An appropriate title for the first post no? 

Since I am likely very alone at this point, I’ll make the introduction brief.  I’ve started this blog to track my little ‘joyride’ with Windows Presentation Foundation.  I’m currently heading a rather ambitious project for my employer that targets WPF.  We’re a niche provider of software and services to the ‘green’ industry (if you’re terribly bored you can guess who) and I’m a Product Development lead in the ‘CAD’ arm of the company.

Naturally, I’m obsessed with vector geometry, which is where WPF’s neat little retained mode graphics system fits in.  I’ll likely be posting a great deal about Visual Layer programming and performance, as these two are terribly important in my world.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to contibute a little something to the early adopter crowd now and then.  At this point, development at the visual layer is still very much a trial and error exercise, and I’m certain I’m not the only one who’d like to see that change.
