Prism has an evolved event model that has taken in a lot of the lessons learned from CAB.  Today’s show: Eventing 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:

  • The 2 problems that the Event Aggregator tries to solve.
  • The price to pay for loosely coupled communications (and loosely coupled apps in general).
  • Why the Prism Eventing doesn’t use strings.
  • Load order – eventing helps in a somewhat surprising way.
