Ever wonder what the MVVM pattern is, why it exists, when it works well, and what parts you may want to use or not use? In this session I'll discuss all of these topics and go through important scenarios including messaging, child windows, testing with design timed data, tombstoning, dialogs, and how to apply these principals to both Silverlight desktop and Windows Phone 7 applications.

Visual Studio 11: Turning Ideas into Software

The world of software today is defined by the word “Experience”. You can see it in the way people have adopted new experiences for devices of different form factors, you can see it in how people want to experience their information and you can see it in the context of how people interact to build software solutions. Regardless of the solution you’re building, the fundamental need for a compelling experience exists. In Visual Studio 11, Microsoft aims to ensure that developers have all the tooling to create compelling user experiences, an IDE that sets a new bar for the developer experience and a family of products dramatically improves the team experience for everyone.
