October 2013 Meetup!!

Ahoy!

The October 2013 Meetup of the The Windows Developer User Group is scheduled for October 21st from 6PM to 8PM @ TechColumbus. Please see details below & kindly RSVP.

Topic:
Building Composite XAML Applications with Prism!

Abstract:
In this session you will learn how to design and build Windows Phone, Silverlight, and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) desktop applications using loosely coupled components that can evolve independently but which can be easily and seamlessly integrated into the overall application. This session concentrates on the basic concepts required to build a composite application with the Microsoft Patterns and Practices Prism framework which includes the bootstrapper, regions, modules, view composition, and different techniques for communicating between loosely couple components.  Various development patterns and technologies will also be discussed including Inversion of Control (IoC), Dependency Injection (DI), Unity, MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework), commanding, event aggregation, and MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel).
