Silverlight 4 - A Guided Tour of the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF)

Sign in to queue

Description

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.

    Awesome presentation. Fantastic. Looks like almost all the concepts of MEF are covered. If possible, can you please post the working source code of this presentation? Thanks

    Thanks for the feedback - I don't have the source code I'm afraid as I tend to put these things together for the session at the time and not keep them afterwards.

    Glad that you found it useful though Smiley

    As always like your videos, just like WCF fast and furious. While going through SMF didn't make any sense on the programming model and landed here, and just in one hour, exactly figured out what all SMF is about. Thank you for the wonderful presentation.
