The Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) is a very powerful tool for building modular, extensible Silverlight applications. If you've followed this blog, you'll know that it is not just for applications that anticipate plug-ins, but can be used as an inversion of control container, can facilitate region management, and much more. In preparing the material for my upcoming presentation that is an Introduction to MVVM, I decided to take an existing, publicly available Silverlight application and refactor it to use MVVM.
