Free SilverlightShow Webinar: MVVM in Windows 8
Presenter: Gill Cleeren

Delivered on October 29th, 2012

Watch the recorded session »

Summary of the session: With Metro-style apps, Microsoft is pushing MVVM with a built-in solution in some of the templates. But what if you’re now 100% clear on the concepts of MVVM? Fear no longer! In this session, we’ll explore the MVVM pattern along with its benefits (and let’s be honest, disadvantages as well) from the Windows 8 perspective. Next to the core principles, we’ll dive deep in how we can apply the pattern for Windows 8 app by building an end-to-end app based on the pattern. We’ll be using the excellent MVVM Light toolkit for our discussion.

    Hi Tad,

    Yes, Monday 29th is the final time for this webinar.

    Apologize for rescheduling this webinar so many times, but when it is a live session, things such as the physical condition of the presenter really must be considered (in this case Gill Cleeren was very sick, and he hoped to get better until the last moment, but this didn't happen).

    In more than 2 years of live SilverlightShow webinars this is our 2nd case of rescheduling. So, you understand that we only reschedule when we realize the quality of the webinar will be poorly affected by the circumstances around the presenter.

    Again, apologize for this inconvenience, and hope you will join the live session on Monday.


    Svetla, SilverlightShow team

    Hey Gill !!

    Awesome webinar, great combination, quick basic summary for the newcomers and nice tips (like the "SL 3 binding state of the art in Windows 8). Five stars rating.
