MEF Deep Dive Talk

Recently, I gave 2 talks about Managed Extensibility Framework. One on KGD.NET, which is our local .NET group (on Nov 24th 2010), and one on IT Academic Day at Uniwersytet Jagielloński in Kraków (Dec 14th 2010). Both of my talks went good! I do enjoy spreading knowledge about MEF and MefContrib! When it comes to the presentations, both were mostly the same, although on ITAD I was speaking more about MEF itself and less about hard stuff, so it was kind a MEF Deep Dive Light Edition =) I covered the following:

  1. Basics of developing loosely coupled components
  2. MEF basics (parts, exports, imports, composition)
  3. Catalogs
  4. Metadata
  5. Custom export attributes
  6. Recomposition
  7. Stable composition
  8. Debugging MEF
  9. MefContrib
  10. MEF Extensibility

You can find all the materials (slides + source code) from the KGD.NET meeting here and from the ITAD here. If you haven’t attended any of the talks, you might still want to go through the slides (these are nice!) and run the demos (VS 2010). Finally, I want thank Mike Taulty for letting me use some of the slides from his MEF talk =)

Hey Piotr,

Any chance you can get these talks recorded?

Hi Sara,

Although the slides were in EN, the audience was all Polish, so it would be of no use outside PL. Waiting for the opportunity to present in EN =)
