I agree there needs to be a limit set.  Good call I didn't think about that one.
 
Thanks,

John,

I hate that we live in a world where this is necessary, but it just occurred to me that if some idiot attends the meetup, drinks too much and gets in a wreck on the way home, you and Andy, as hosts, and I, as organizer, could be held liable.  I think we need to:

a) make sure anyone drinking is older than 21,
b) limit attendees' beer consumption

Any thoughts?

Chris...this will be very interesting for us...we're working on a project that will be using, at various phases, WPF and GDI+ to render 2048x1536 bitmaps.
 
On a related note, Andy will be showing our FastBitmap class (which gives you a quicker getpixel/setpixel), along with our AppWrapper (enforces single instance, catches unhandled exceptions, and some other nice things), and possibly our TimeKeeper class, essentially nano-second precise DateTime for doing high-precision timing.
 
I will be showing some fun stuff with Adobe Flex interoperating with ASP.net web services.  It's a really interesting way to leverage the deployability of Flash with the ease of .Net development.
 
This is shaping up to be a great meetup!
 
-John

Subject: [dotnet-130] native .NET graphics performance issues

If anyone is interested at the next meetup, I'll be talking about limitations in .NET graphics (WPF and WinForms). To highlight these problems, I have uploaded a few projects (all names begin with "Sierpinski").

In a nutshell, if you need to generate graphical output over time and that output is in the form of dots rather than lines, rectangles, ellipses, etc., WPF is absolutely not the way to go. Winforms will work, but you may have to use the Windows API depending on your need to zoom in and out.

These projects also use:

  • thread synchronization
  • calling unmanaged code (the Windows API)
  • mathematical optimization
