Introduction to the MVVM UI Pattern

Whether you're writing a Silverlight or WPF application, if the UI is written in XAML, you need to be looking at the MVVM (Model-View-View Model) pattern.  Taking advantage of XAML's rich data-binding capabilities, MVVM allows for a clean separation between the UI and the application logic.  In this talk, I'll cover the basic hows and whys of this pattern in the context of building a simple application from scratch.
