Extensibility is a key design point for many applications such as the Microsoft Office applications with their plug-in model for extensibility. Silverlight 4 ships with a new framework, the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF), which provides a flexible way of building extensibility into your applications with capabilities for discovering and composing extensions at run-time in a dynamic and loosely-coupled way. In this demo-based session we’ll take a tour around MEF and look at its capabilities for building extensibility into your applications and also how it can be used in implementing the Model->View->ViewModel (MVVM) pattern in Silverlight applications.

  • Mike,

    Excellent presentation with great demos! You never disappoint!! I especially liked the little MVVM ditty near the end of the talk. Would have even liked some more of that. I'ver noticed that most folks talk about MVVM and how it provides for great SOC and improves "testability" but I've never seen anyone TDD a MVVM app. Sure would love to see someone really great do something like that <smile>.




  • Mike Taulty is da man. I loved his other tutorials on MEF as well.
