EastBay.NET: Introduction to Prism with WPF


Introduction to Prism with WPF

Prism is a framework that helps you design and build 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 talk concentrates on the basic concepts required to build a composite application with the Microsoft Patterns and Practices Prism 4.0 framework which includes the boostrapper, regions, modules, view composition, and different techniques for communicating between loosely couple components.

Join us for this informative talk.

Moving From Agile/Scrum to Kanban

My company, RelayHealth, has moved from Agile/Scrum to Kanban, or continuous flow development. We have also changed deployments from quarterly to weekly and are about to move to "at will". This talk is a summary of how our development teams work, our move to continuous, and the stumbles along the way. Included is an overview of the tools we use to make it possible.

Ron Cordell is the Operations Architect for RelayHealth. RelayHealth has a C#, ASP.NET, SQL Server 2008 based intrastructure for health system message processing and integration. Ron has been involved with health care software since about 2001 but also in a wide range of software (and some hardward) development for the past 35 years. These days Ron spends his outside of work time with his wife and two dogs as well as hiking, trail running, road and MTB cycling and just enjoying everything that life has to offer.

    Our Fundamentals speakers was *excellent*. It was interesting to hear how teams are really implementing these practices.

    Our main speaker was able to take a complex framework (Prism) and explain it in a straight-forward manner. And he was able to get the audience involved.
