Title: Build Your Own MVVM Framework (Vote)
You’ve heard a lot about MVVM, but you’ve struggled to see how it can help you in your day to day work. Or, you are experienced at implementing MVVM, but looking for some ways to maximize on your investment in this methodology. In this talk, we will build a simple MVVM framework by iteratively identifying pain points in our UI development and eliminating them with simple solutions. Attendees will walk away with code, but more importantly with an understanding of how to apply some simple ideas to improve productivity with MVVM in their own projects.
Title: Productive Silverlight with Caliburn (Vote)
You’ve standardized on a UI development methodology such as MVVM or MVP, or you simply know that you should be exercising strong software craftsmanship by promoting extensibility and maintainability in your UI tier. But, you’ve realized this takes a lot of work. You want simplicity and productivity without sacrificing your design goals and without having to spend weeks building an infrastructure to support it. In this talk, we will look at how the Caliburn framework (http://www.caliburnproject.org/) provides high level services and building blocks for UI construction. You’ll walk away with a firm understanding of the framework and how to use it to build Silverlight (and WPF) UI.
