There are way too many overly complex Model View View Model (MVVM) design patterns and libraries in the development world. How is a programmer that is new to Microsoft Silverlight, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or Windows Phone to ever learn how to use MVVM quickly and easily? This session guides you step-by-step through how to take advantage of this powerful design pattern. You don't have to learn any of the MVVM libraries; instead learn how to use your own classes to implement MVVM. The main goal of MVVM is to help you develop code that is testable and re-usable, and this can be accomplished by just using a simple approach to MVVM. You will walk away with some great base classes that will help you incorporate MVVM into your XAML applications.
