MVVM (Model-View-ViewMode­l) from the ground up

*The Windows Phone 8 session has been cancelled. A different talk will be given on the night*

The Windows Phone 8 SDK & NDA have still not been released. The Windows Phone session will be on hold until Microsoft tells us more. Details on the new event are below.


David Burela takes anyone new to Desktop development through the basics of developing for Windows 8. XAML, Databinding, DataTemplates and ViewModels will all be introduced. Discover how to separate your UI from your business logic, how to create List Views that display your data richly, how portable libraries can help your business logic be used cross platform, plus much more.  The techniques will be focused on Windows 8, but can be applied to any XAML based application: WinRT, Windows Phone, WPF, Silverlight 5.

5:30pm Pizzas & networking
6:00pm Talks start

    Good overview of how to do MVVM properly. Turns out I am not doing it as wrong as I thought.

    Apologies all, but I needed to shift the date of the Meetup until Wed Sep 5th as the Windows Phone 8 SDK (and details) haven't been made public yet.
    But here is some information you can read right now that has been made public
