We will be covering the concepts and architectural patterns behind MVVM then move to discuss the MVVM-friendly features of WPF/Silverlight including XAML, Dependency Properties, Attached Properties and Behaviors. We will also take a look at some of the available MVVM Frameworks that can help quickly create the necessary structure and setup for an MVVM project including Prism, Caliburn Micro and MVVM Light.

Hope to see you all there!

With the increasing adoption of Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Model-View-View Model (MVVM) is gaining ground as the architecture of choice for delivering modular, scalable and easily extensible solutions. In this talk, we will first go over a WPF sample using a "code-behind" development paradigm then move to explain what MVVM is all about along with its inherent support in WPF. All attendees will be invited to discuss and share their ideas, thoughts and comments on the subject.
