Perth .NET User Group Meeting, Thurs May 3rd: Rich Client MVC? with Jake Ginnivan


A common occurrence in WPF, Silverlight and even WP7 projects are very large view-models, which are hard to test because of the number of responsibilities. They often have low cohesion and high coupling, both which hinder maintainability of a project. MVVM just isn’t a complete solution.

In this talk, Jake will demonstrate some of the common issues (and solutions) encountered in WPF, Silverlight and WP7 development. He will also demonstrate how an open source framework he has been building, Phoenix, can simplify rich client development. Phoenix is an extensible MVVM+C framework which is designed around the new Async features coming in .NET 4.5, taking some great MVC features and combining them with MVVM to make rich client development much simpler.
