MVVM Light for Silverlight

MVVM Light Toolkit

The MVVM Light Toolkit by Laurent Bugnion is a set of components helping people to get started in the “Model – View – View Model” pattern in Silverlight and WPF. It is a light and pragmatic framework that contains only the essential components needed.

The toolkit helps you to separate your View from your Model so that you can build loosely-coupled applications that have better maintainability, extensibility, testability and blendability features, which simply stands for the design-development workflow.

There are various MVVM frameworks out there; you may prefer to use a different one. We have listed especially this framework as it is very well documented from installation up to creating your first MVVM app in Expression Blend and Visual Studio, whether it is targeting the web or the Windows Phone 7 Series.

To check out the concept behind MVVM and how to apply it in your Silverlight applications, you can take a look at the Data Driven Applications with MVVM Series on SilverlightShow.com website.
