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 video 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 video 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.
You will Learn
- Best practices for Architecting a base Framework
- Framework considerations for Re-using class libraries in WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone
