  • Introduction to architecting Silverlight applications with Prism v4

    1:15 PM Sunday   Room: Hearthside Lounge
    Prism is Microsoft's code library and best-practices guidance for designing large scale Silverlight and WPF applications. This presentation will give an introductory overview of the main features and benefits of using Prism, including some of the changes that will soon be released with version 4. (A beta release of v4 is downloadable now from CodePlex.) <p> If you are writing a moderate to large Silverlight or WPF application you will face architectural challenges. How will you break your program up into parts? How will the parts talk to one another? The Prism libraries offer four main features to support breaking your app into parts and helping those parts communicate: Modularization, UI-Regions, Events and Commands. We will look at code that demonstrates those four features. We'll also look at the new support Prism v4 adds for MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework) and for the MVVM pattern.</p>
