Tomorrow I kiss the wife and baby goodbye (sadly) and hop on a plane heading to Mix in Las Vegas. This year I have the unique honor and privilege to present “Build Your Own MVVM Framework.” I’ll be speaking Monday afternoon at 3:30 PM in Lagoon F. Here’s the official description of my talk:
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 look at a simple MVVM application and see how a small, application-specific framework can help eliminate pain points in our UI development and provide simple and effective 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.
This is an intermediate level discussion of MVVM and presupposes knowledge of either WPF or Silverlight and a grasp of the basic MVVM pattern. If you are new to MVVM, let me encourage you to attend Laurent Bugnion’s talk “Understanding the Model-View-ViewModel Pattern,” conveniently scheduled just before me at 2:00pm in Lagoon F.
During the conference, I’m planning to spend plenty of time in the lounge. I’ll probably be working on Caliburn :) If you’re interested in Caliburn and will be at Mix, let me know. If there is enough interest, I can do a small demo/presentation in the lounge at some point. I’m looking forward to seeing you there and thank you to everyone who voted for my talk!
