Back on May 12th, I attended this little event you might have heard of called TechEd in Houston, TX. Just before the event, Robert Green, the host of Visual Studio Toolbox on Channel9, invited me back on the show to talk a little about MVVM and some best practices I would recommend to anyone using MVVM, or getting started with MVVM. The last time I was on the show, I was joined by Jason Beres at TechEd in New Orleans, where we talked about Infragistics kick-ass XAML controls. At the end of the show Robert gave us both a little gift… Mardi Gras beads! And I didn’t even have to flash anyone. So this time, I thought I would return the favor, and give Robert a gift that you can only get in Idaho. Darth Tater!
In this episode, I share my best practices for building applications using MVVM. I start off by reviewing what MVVM is and what it isn’t. I then demonstrate several things you should not do and why you should not do them. In addition to the demos, I give some advice on how I approach some common scenarios.
This video was uploaded on May 21, 2014, and in just eight short days, it has become the #1 highest rated episode of all time. I’m not sure how long that will last, but I am pretty excited about it right now. I would like to thank everyone that took the time to watch the episode, left a comment, and voted. I appreciate all the support that you, and the entire developer community, gives me. Let’s see how long it will stay at the top.
