September 2013 Meeting - Martin Taylor talks about Prism

Published on 05 September 2013

Aberdeen Developers are pleased to present a talk by Martin Taylor on Thursday 19th September 2013 at the Robert Gordon University.

Building WPF and Silverlight Applications with Prism

Taken from Microsoft's Prism page on CodePlex:

"Prism provides guidance designed to help you more easily design and build rich, flexible, and easy-to-maintain Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) desktop applications, Silverlight Rich Internet Applications (RIAs), and Windows Phone 7 applications.

Using design patterns that embody important architectural design principles, such as separation of concerns and loose coupling, Prism helps you to design and build applications using loosely coupled components that can evolve independently but that can be easily and seamlessly integrated into the overall application. These types of applications are known as composite applications."

In this talk, Martin will talk about his experience using Prism for building applications for the WPF 4 and Silverlight 5 platforms. He will show you how Prism can help you:

  • Modularise your application
  • Implement MVVM effectively
  • Create flexible user interfaces
  • Communicate between components using loosely coupled events (publish/subscribe)
