Sacha Barber

Sacha Barber - The Ghostbuster!Sacha grew up in the middle of the rainforest in North Queensland Australia. Sacha spent most of his spare time as a youth eating way too much sugar cane, swimming with freshwater crocodiles (crocs for those in the know) and being rad on his BMX. One day his dad shipped him of to his mum in the UK, where he had deviations (before finding the only path) into the electronics and music technology areas (Sacha used to run a hardcore techno record label), before meeting a mad (Phd Maths mad) chap who introduced him to .NET 1.0. And that was it…..young Sacha was in love.

Of late Sacha has been back to Uni to gain a BSc and an MSc….He was top of his class in both, and got a 1st and a passed with distinctions for his Msc. His passion for all things C# have earned him (and he is stoked about it) both a Microsoft C# MVP 2008, and a Codeproject MVP 2008.

Sacha writes articles for fun and also attempts to keep up with Marlon Grech and Karl Shifflett in the blog stakes. Though he knows he is on a hiding to nothing as they are vampires or undead and just don’t sleep. Sacha needs sleep from time to time.

Anyways some Sacha related links:

Have you ever considered doing a Code Project article for the new ESRI Silverlight/WPF Map control? There are a lot of examples for silverlight, but none for WPF (that I can find) and nothing utilizing the MVVM Framework.
I know you have done some mapping stuff in the past as was just curious if you had looked into the new ESRI stuff. I think it would be increadibly useful to the community if someone as smart as you could put out a real world example of the WPF portion. It doesn’t get a lot of play in the blogs/code examples.

Just curious if you had considered it.

Thanks for you time.

Diagramming tool Using WPF…is it the right choice?
First of all I apologize for asking this as wrong place. I tried getting your contact to ask my query and I ended up getting this place.

I am building a diagramming tool that will import an SVG as background and then create a network like diagram on top of it.
The objects that i will be using to draw diagram will also be SVG files.

So I would like to know whether the WPF is the way to go or something else?

Thank you
Bharat Mane

Irgendwie enttäuschend ist, da meine erst kürzlich verstorbenen Großeltern beide fit, gesund und
selbstständig fast 100 geworden sind.
