The Value of Prism (Silverlight TV

In this episode of Silverlight TV, Brian Noyes discusses strategies for building Silverlight business applications. Brian is an advisor working with the Patterns and Practices team on the current and future versions of Prism. John and Brian discuss what Prism is, when to use it, when not to use it, and how to pick and choose which parts of Prism may be of most value to your application.

Prism is made up of various parts including modularity, regions, the shell, commanding, events/messaging. Brian explains and demonstrates how each of these concepts is tackled by Prism 2.2 and some possible future plans for Prism 4. We'll do some follow up shows on Prism and on MVVM later this summer, too!
