Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern is the de-facto standard for creating applications in WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone. Using MVVM allows developers to leverage platform features like DataBinding, Routed Events, Routed Commands, DataTemplates and ResourceDictionaries to create maintainable and testable applications. Windows 8 applications continue this tradition and you will learn how to create Windows 8 apps using MVVM.
