Family Show – Showing Off WPF with a Genealogy Application

Posted by workerthread on May 4, 2009

US Company Vertigo have a long track record in the development of showcase solutions for a range of clients, and have been involved in several proof of concept projects for Microsoft going back over the years.  Right now they have a very nice Windows Presentation Foundation project available for download called Family Show.  The latest version of this has been put together using Visual Studio 2008 and .Net 3.5, and certainly shows off some nice user interface design features.  If you are interested in UI design, or indeed if you have an interest in genealogy, this is worth a download.

Here’s a quick screenshot of how it looks (click picture for a better view):


(by the way, it’s not one of my relatives 🙂 )

So if you want to take a look for yourself, the download is available here, and source code is available as a CodePlex project here.  Scott Stanfield from Vertigo has also recorded a video demo of Family Show which you can watch here.
