Episode 83 of Visual Studio Toolbox

In this hour long episode, I show you how to get started using the MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) pattern in your XAML apps. He reviews what MVVM is and then adds MVVM to an existing Windows Store app. You won't see all of the techniques used in MVVM, but you will see enough to understand how you can start using it in your own projects and what benefits it offers.

For more explanation, see my blog post and the accompanying MSDN sample.

    Hi Green,

    Your articulation of the MVVM pattern and its implementation was extremely good.  I really liked the step by step approach to reduce code from the view's code behind.

    With regards to the samples, since some (or many) of us continue to use Windows 8 and don't have a Windows 8.1 developer account, the solutions do not load in Visual Studio 2013.  A humble request – Unless the code demonstration is specific to Windows 8.1, it would be helpful if you could offer sample code that works on commonly used versions of Visual Studio, like the Professional edition.  Thanks, in advance.
