In the world of Windows Phone development, the cornerstone app architecture is called MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel). In this video, Matthias Shapiro talks through some of the structure of an MVVM application to talk about how we build MVVM apps for the phone to take advantage of benefits like data binding, commanding and ViewModel portability.
In this article, Laurent Bugnion from the MSDN Magazine takes a closer look at one of the important components of any Model-View-ViewModel applications: the command.
This article, the second in a series about using the MVVM model in Windows 8, describes how the different layers of an application communicate, emphasizing communication between the ViewModel and the view using the MVVM Light Messenger event bus for status messages and a view service implementation for a dialog service.
The Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) design pattern achieves a separation of logic and UX in Windows Store applications and also enables UX designers to create and test UIs without the existence of the underlying logic. Learn how to create an application using the MVVM design pattern in Visual Studio 12, using the MVVM Light Toolkit.
