User Controls: Tutorial Available

A quick announcement and some words of thanks. I'm pleased to say that Tutorial #5: Keyboard Input and User Controls is now available for reading on line or as a PDF.

UserControl

The thanks go first to Karen Corby whose amazing presentation at Mix I shamelessly stole as the basis for the tutorial (see my blog entry about Karen) and to Silverlight Cream for such a glowing review that my ego can not resist reproducing it here

Jesse Liberty posted this amazing Tutorial on User Controls … it's like a treatise or something… wow… download the PDF and code and then run away somewhere for a weekend and try to absorb everything in this tutorial, and then I tell you… good luck! … great material as usual

Reviews in Perspective

Which leads me to a quick story about writing. Shortly after I wrote my first book (Teach Yourself C++ In 21 Days) I received two emails. The first said

I have read 5 books on C++, and I always get stuck on pointers. Yours is  the first one I understand… 

The second said,

I don't know what it is you do for a living, but it isn't programming or writing, because you are incompetent at both.

  I hung them both up on my wall.
