24 people went


Talk Info :

The techniques for building applications have changed dramatically in the last
few years. Gone are the days of single-tier, battle-ship gray, boring user
interfaces. Users demand that your applications (or portions) run on more than
one device. This session will take you on a tour of how you should be architecting your application by breaking it up into services. You will learn how
to create your business rules and data layer as a service. This seminar will
assume you have some knowledge of .NET but have been developing
applications the old way and you are now looking to see how to use WCF and
the Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) design pattern to create applications that
can be run one more than one user interface platform. This session has many
demonstrations and you will be led step-by-step through the code. You will walk
away with a sample set of services that run on Silverlight, Windows Forms,
WPF, Windows Phone and ASP.NET.
