Tampa Bay Windows Dev is having Walt Rischer in on Tuesday, August 6th. We don't have a topic settled, but it should be awesome.
If you are unfamiliar with Walt, here's his bio from O'Reilly:
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. Recently he has entered the video training market producing .NET titles for Lynda.com He writes for several publications including Code Magazine and TechTarget.com. His current UI obsession revolves around the Windows 8 Metro, Silverlight, Surface 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).
He's the author of the HLSL and Pixel Shaders for XAML Developers. He came to the (now defunct) Silverlight User Group 2 years ago, and rocked all our world on his ability to take a pretty complex topic and made it understandable for a number of us (who were not rocket scientists... in other words, Jay). You do not want to miss him.
