Walt's enthusiasm for crafting software interfaces blossomed early. Just a few days after discovering how to make pixels move around the screen of a borrowed computer he was devouring books on the topic of computer graphics and UI design. Now he travels the world speaking at software conferences and teaching a diverse portfolio of programming topics for corporate clients. On the consulting side he continues to work with customers like Microsoft, HP, Intel, and Intuit and enjoys being part of the Wintellect consultant group. He has many online video training courses available in the WintellectNow, Lynda and Udemy catalogs. He writes for several publications including Code Magazine and has a new "HLSL and Pixel Shaders for XAML Developer" book available from O'Reilly Media. His current UI obsession revolves around the Windows 8 Metro, Mobile, ASP.NET MVC and WPF APIs. You can find his blog at blog.wpfwonderland.com. Walt is also a Microsoft MVP and author of the free Shazzam WPF Shader utility (shazzam-tool.com). While working with Microsoft Press he was instrumental in creating ‘early adopter’ .NET courses for colleges and universities. He is heavily involved in the developer community – founding the .NET Developers Association Redmond WA. Walt has accumulated plenty of experience as a developer – he is fluent in database, component, and win-forms technologies. As a web programmer he has worked on several prototype ASP.NET projects including the Microsoft Community Starter Kit. His company, Scandiasoft, produces developer tools. In 2007 I joined Wintellect as a trainer and consultant. I'm teaching a variety of classes for them and producing Wintellect's WPF course. My current passion is with WPF and Silverlight.
