In November myself and some friends presented an “MVVM Smack Down” at the North Texas Silverlight User Group. We did a head to head comparison of Prism 4, The MVVM Light toolkit, Caliburn Micro, and Jounce. It was presented with a bit of friendly banter and was meant really to enlighten, compare, and contrast more than to judge the various frameworks.

The videos are available here:

  • Tim Jones presenting Prism V4
  • David Yancey presenting Jounce
  • Bonas Khanal presenting MVVM Light
  • Justin Weinberg (yours truly) presenting Caliburn Micro

For many of us this was our first technical presentation in front of a public audience. There was areas for improvement and I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked, but I think all things considered it went fairly well.

I also wanted to give a special thanks to Shawn Weisfeld for recording the sessions for INETA (and all the sessions he records).
