We're mixing things up a bit this month with dual presenters for our main meeting.
TALK #1 - Understanding the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) Pattern
Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) is an architectural pattern commonly found in WPF, Silverlight and Xamarin applications and in this presentation we're going to take a close look at what it does and what problems it solves.
TALK #2 - Getting Fabulous With Xamarin and MVU
You are probably familiar with Xamarin but did you know that Microsoft is putting lots of energy and resources into making it the best cross-platform framework for your mobile development needs? It true - and as the mobile application development industry evolves, Xamarin is evolving also. In this session, we will look at today's most popular design pattern: Model-View-Update. Microsoft and the open source .NET community have implemented M-V-U using Fabulous, a F# port of the Elm pattern. We will take a brief overview of Fabulous and then look under the hood at a working application that uses it
--ABOUT OUR SPEAKERS--
I am a Software Engineer at Applied Information Sciences (AIS) and relatively new to the game with 3 years of experience in C# and the .NET stack. I am an advocate for Clean Code, Humane Code and other variants of developing software that is structured not only to meet the requirements of the user, but also software that can be read and maintained because the code clearly communicates the intent of the code.
