Intro to MVVM and WPF by Miguel Castro (Video)

Today I decided to take the plunge and try and learn some MVVM with WPF. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but the learning curve put me off a little. Going from windows forms where we write code behind to having a structure like MVVM where we just databind everything!

However, a quick youtube search for “Intro to MVVM” pulled up a video from DevExpress featuring Miguel Castro talking about everything we would need to know to get started with databinding and using commands.

Miguel explains the basics of each part of the framework (View, Model, ViewModel) and gives us multiple ways to achieve the same thing. The best part about this is how he uses simple examples and explains everything at the right pace for someone who doesn’t know anything about WPF or MVVM.

The video is over an hour long and I do recommend you watch the whole thing but if you do just want a basic intro you can probably get away with watching the first 30-40 minutes.

Lastly, this is not my work but I wanted to share this with everyone as the video doesn’t have a great deal of views. Credit goes to DevExpress and Miguel Castro for a fantastic video tutorial 🙂 Thanks!
