Free SilverlightShow Webinar:
Prism and WCF RIA Services - Two Great Toolkits That Work Great Together    

This webinar has been delivered on May 30.

Prism is a toolkit for building composite Silverlight and WPF applications. WCF RIA Services is a framework for exposing data to Silverlight clients and consuming it on the client side. While the two may seem somewhat orthogonal to one another, it may not be clear if and how you should combine them in a Silverlight business application. You could just try to throw them both together in an application, but you would run into certain disconnects in the way Prism wants you to structure your projects into modules and the way the client side code generation happens in RIA Services.
In this webinar Silverlight MVP Brian Noyes will give a quick overview of what Prism is and what its feature set includes. He'll do a very quick review of what WCF RIA Services does,and will focus on how you can build a Silverlight Prism application and factor your functionality into modules while still making the RIA Services functionality available in multiple modules. Attendees will find out how to leverage the Repository pattern to pull all the RIA Services client side code into one place, expose the data from a Repository service that you can then pull into any scope in the application that wants to consume it.

The live session includes a short Q&A part at the end

    This is great!  

    Hey Brian,  this is something that is missing in the developer community.  I would like to see an example with the following.

    Membership Module: Forms Authentication.

    Using the membership services in a separte decoupled module.

    Be able to use my membership module in other solutions.

    Intermodule communication in this scenario.

    What is the best practice for maintaing the webcontex of the membership module?

    Thank you Brian for putting this together.  I bought your WCF RIA Services ebook and it was fantastic.

    By any chance, could you make all your webinars on Prism 4, and also all webinars on WCF RIA services available for download in .wmv format.    Many of us can't sit online to view them.   I would like to get these webinars for offline viewing.
