Sebastopol, CA—Simplify and speed up the development of business applications with Windows® Presentation Foundation (WPF) and the Model View ViewModel (MVVM) design pattern. With this hands-on guide—Building Enterprise Applications with Windows® Presentation Foundation and the Model View ViewModel Pattern (Microsoft Press, $19.99 USD)—you'll master the techniques to bind data to your WPF user interfaces by constructing an example application through the course of the book. Gain valuable skills with WPF and MVVM that you can immediately apply to your own projects.

"If you plan to work with Windows Presentation Foundation, Silverlight, or Windows Phone 7, you should get in touch with the MVVM pattern," says author Raffaele Garofalo (@raffaeu). "This book focuses on this pattern implementation. In the future, I see only these technologies in the .NET world—and the MVVM pattern is the solution for them."

  • Master the MVVM design pattern and apply it to WPF development
  • Employ agile techniques to help reduce development time
  • Take advantage of the powerful data services in WPF to bind application data
  • Create rich, flexible, and maintainable client applications for the enterprise
  • Build an example Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application from start to finish
  • Use Microsoft Silverlight® or WPF to build applications with MVVM
