I would like to share that I will be speaking at the Deerfield Beach Coders Café on February 7th, 2012 6:30 PM on concepts behind PRISM and MEF including IoC Containers, Composition, Dependency Injection, Loose-coupling and Inheritance. We will be also adding a little Agile spin to the talk focusing on the importance and ideal use of the underlying design patterns in an Agile software shop.
I am also scheduled to present a similar topic at the upcoming South Florida Code Camp taking place on Saturday February 18th, 2012.
Look forward to meeting everyone either at Deerfield Beach or South Florida Code Camp.

Introducing PRISM and MEF for the Agile Software Developer with Sam Abraham
Join us as we highlight some increasingly popular design concepts that may come to good use when taking an incremental approach to delivering functional code. In particular we will be introducing PRISM and MEF, both provided as open source frameworks by the Microsoft Patterns and Practices Team (http://compositewpf.codeplex.com/), as an example of how concepts such as IoC, Dependency Injection and Composition come into play with parallel and incremental software development.
