Topics: Understanding how to apply MVVM and Q&A - Jeff Jackson, ESRI
ESRI's direction on APPS and the ArcGIS Runtime - Euan Cameron, ESRI
Please join us for this terrific opportunity to meet with two of ESRI's top developers and discuss using Model View ViewModel (MVVM) in web applications and the direction of APPS and ArcGIS Runtime.
MVVM is an architectural pattern used in development. It provides a clear separation between the GUI interface and the business logic used for the data. Basically, it separates your XAML from your code behind in a more manageable way, primarily for Silverlight/WPF developers.
Everyone is welcome. Please bring your questions. Please contact Dorothy Mortenson for more information.
