SA Developer Event: Brian Noyes in Johannesburg

The Johannesburg chapter of SA Developer .NET is hosting Brian Noyes, Chief Architect of IDesign, for a community event next week.

Brian is in South Africa delivering training for Dariel Solutions and has generously offered up some of his time to present to the Gauteng developer community.

Event Details

Topic: Separate Your Concerns with MVVM and WPF Data Binding
Description: Data binding in WPF is very powerful and flexible, and lets you decouple your UI definition from the objects you display to a large degree. But what about the code that creates and manages those objects? If you are not careful, that can all end up as a mess of logic in the code behind of your view and you haven't really decoupled anything. This session will teach you about the MVVM pattern, how to implement it, how to bind your view controls to your ViewModel, how to relate the view and the ViewModel, how to let them communicate, and more.
Date: 11 May 2010
Time: 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Venue: Microsoft Offices
