Modularity is one of the best things about Prism: It allows us to separate concerns and make testable, maintainable applications.  It’s also one of the easiest concepts to understand.  This show: Modularity in Prism.  This show was taped on location in Microsoft building 5 with  Patterns & Practices team members Bob Brumfield and David Hill. Also joining us was Shawn Wildermuth.

We talk about:

  • Benefits of modularity in Prism
  • Asynchronous downloading of modules
  • How modules are tied to .dlls and .xap files
  • Containers and Unity in Prism
  • An overview of Services
  • How Services allow testing
  • Using containers other than Unity
