About 5 or 6 people have now pointed out to me that Tim Sneath has featured the Regatta Manager as his #7 Great WPF application. I am truly flattered by his kind words, but more importantly am honored to have had the opportunity to work with him and the others involved in publicizing the Skandia Cowes Week software.
I think however I was most shocked by the fact that the Regatta Manager was only the 2nd application to go into a production environment that made use of WPF. Whilst surprising I suppose it is understandable; I was in the fortunate position to be in control of the entire develop process, had a fixed deadline of the end of July and made the call that the advantages of using WPF more than outweighed any issues that might arise from using beta software. Making that call resulted in a fantastic piece of software, as Tim says, that we could really is a testament to the quality of WPF.
