Applied MVVM in Windows 8 apps: not your typical MVVM session!
For some time now, the community has been touting the MVVM pattern as being the best way to build XAML-based applications. By now, you should be convinced that MVVM is really the way to go. But then, you start building a real-world Windows 8 application and you encounter all kinds of challenges you hadn’t thought about before. How do I properly structure an application? How do I implement navigation? How do I manage tiles or contracts from MVVM? How do the new data controls in Windows 8 work in combination with MVVM? And what about the background tasks in combination with MVVM? A whole list of questions that this session will aim at answering! For your convenience, a small overview of the MVVM pattern is included in this talk so even if you don't have any experience with MVVM, you should be able to keep up!
