Tonight, Bil Simser and I had the pleasure of presenting a brief overview of Prism (aka the Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight) to a crowd of 150 developers at Shaw Court in Calgary. You can find the slidedeck here. If you’re interested in getting started with Prism and related concepts, this is a good set of resources to start from:
- Composite WPF and Silverlight (aka Prism)
- Composite WPF Contrib
- Prism: Patterns for Building Composite Applications with WPF, MSDN Magazine September 2008
- Loosen Up: Tame Your Software Dependencies for More Flexible Apps, MSDN Magazine March 2008
Thanks to everyone whom came out. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me or Bil. If you’d like to find out more about Prism and go much deeper into the underlying technology, there is always Microsoft Tech•Days Canada 2008…
BTW – Some of you might have caught the inside joke in the slidedeck. For the rest… Bil does not in fact work for Zombie Inc., though he probably wishes he did. He is a big fan of the game Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without a Pulse. 10 minutes with Paint.NET and I had a decent looking corporate logo for his fictitious company. It’s really quite amazing what you can do with this free .NET application, though the true Paint.NET master remains Justice Gray.
