By Well this is not a perfect world, but we are getting closer. Windows 8now, you should be convinced that MVVM is really the way to go. and Windows Phone 8 both run on XAML and C#, and allow reusingBut then, you start building a real-world Windows 8 application and tools, skills and a fair percentage of code. In this session, Laurentyou encounter all kinds of challenges you hadn’t thought about Bugnion, the creator of the MVVM Light Toolkit and an expert inbefore. How do I properly structure an application? How do I XAML development, will present ways to share code (such as usingimplement navigation? How do I manage tiles or contracts from the Portable Class Libraries) and how to structure your applicationsMVVM? And how do the new data controls in Windows 8 work in to minimize the amount of non-reusable code. We will also leveragecombination with MVVM? A whole list of questions that this session modern development tools (Visual Studio, unit testing, Expressionwill aim at answering! Blend) to see how we can adapt our skills and build apps for multiple platforms.
