April CINNUG - Implementing M-V-V-M for WPF by Phil Japikse
Tuesday, April 27th - 6:00PM; Social Time - 5:30PM - MAX Technical Training - Mason, OH
NOTE: Topic Change
Due to unforeseen circumstances Chris Woodruff will not be able to join us at our April meeting. We have substituted Phil Japikse in with a talk on M-V-V-M (Model-View-View-Model).
The M-V-V-M pattern is the WPF adaptation of the Presentation Model pattern first docu-mented by Martin Fowler.
In this session we will build an app that shows how the M-V-V-M pattern is utilized for building SOLID WPF applications that are also testable.
Mike Wood will be giving the grok talk on Powershell 2.

What is BitSlingers?
This is an informal meetup of people interested in learning
from one another. Bring your laptop and pair up with someone to work on an open

is no agenda or specific topic, just a time set aside for people to pair.
The meetup officially kicks off at 6:00PM, but lasts until
the last pair breaks up, or they kick us out. Feel free to come and join us for
as long, or as short, of a time as you want to.
NOTE: There will be no food provided, but
