MVVM Survival Guide for Enterprise Architectures in Silverlight and WPF

Rich client development remains one of the most popular forms of application development, both from a user and a developer point of view. While nobody denies the importance of thin-client interface technologies such as HTML(5), it is clear that consumers and enterprises alike enjoy using applications that provide a rich, powerful, productive, and sometimes fun experience. Evidence ranges from the current App Craze on mobile devices to the long-running history of rich business applications deployed by many businesses of all sizes. Many of the most successful applications and systems, measured in commercial success and/or popularity, are either entirely based on Rich Client technology or make Rich Clients part of the mix.

If you are a Microsoft developer (and if you are reading this book, the chances are that you are), you find yourself in the lucky position of getting a chance to use one of the best, if not the best, sets of Rich Client development technologies and tools. The paradigm first introduced by WPF (then known under its Avalon code name) and the XAML declarative approach have turned out to be a super-productive, highly maintainable, and highly reusable approach. The technologies are easy to use once the developer gets acquainted with the ideas behind the setup of XAML-based systems. It is true that there is a learning curve. As an industry, we have used the same UI development paradigm across many languages, systems, and even platforms for a very long period of time, reaching back all the way to MS DOS. The drop a control on a form, set a few properties, and wire up some event handlers approach can be found almost universally in pre-XAML scenarios ranging from Visual Basic, to C++, PowerBuilder, Delphi, Visual FoxPro, .NET Windows Forms, ASP.NET WebForms, even standalone HTML scenarios, and many more. XAML breaks that mold. Yes, you can still employ the old paradigm, but you can reap significant benefits by following the new ideas. By reading this book, you are well on your way down that path, and you will find that while there is a hump in the learning curve you need to get over, there also is a significant downward slope on the other side of that hump. While many environments retain a high level of difficulty even once you achieve a high degree of familiarity, WPF is different in that things tend to be pretty straightforward once you know how to do things the right way.
