Prism is a library of patterns that help you build robust, flexible and modular WPF and Silverlight applications. These patterns also support unit testing, separation of concerns, loose coupling and the ability to share application logic between Silverlight and WPF applications. The download includes the source code for the library itself, extensive documentation, a sample application that shows how the patterns work together in a real-world application, and a whole bunch of quick-starts and how-to’s. There’s even a snazzy Visual Studio add-in to help you easily share code between WPF and Silverlight.
The Prism team has been busy writing blogs and recording videos to get the word out…
