Reminder: Perth .NET User Group Meeting: Thurs 1st July, 5:30pm: Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) - with Mike Minutillo
Applications that can be reconfigured and extended after deployment often last longer and enjoy greater success. Enabling this powerful technique requires forethought and planning and can be difficult to implement. .NET 4.0's Managed Extensibility Framework provides you with the tools you need to make highly customizable applications with very little additional effort. You will walk away from this session ready to extend existing MEF-based products and add MEF extensibility to your own applications.
Mike Minutillo is .NET software engineer with a BSc in computer science. He is a regular attendee at the Perth .NET Community of Practice where he has given presentations on new features of C#, ASP.NET MVC and Test-Driven Philosophy. Mike is half of the winning team in the 2008 Microsoft DevSta programming competition winning best overall application and best mobile application. Mike is co-author of the upcoming Professional Visual Studio 2010. He maintains a technical blog at http://wolfbyte-net.blogspot.com/ and can be contacted at http://twitter.com/wolfbyte/
