Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, October 26, at 6:00 PM in the MPR of of the Charlotte Microsoft Campus for a presentation on the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) by Derik Whittaker, MVP. We all know that building enterprise-scale applications is complex and updating them is even more complex. The key to building applications which can be easily maintained and extended over time is to build the application to be pluggable. However until now, building a pluggable application was both complicated and tiresome. This is easy now that we have the MEF framework. In this session we will learn how to build out a pluggable application using the MEF framework. This is a quick lap around the various features which are available in the MEF framework and should provide the viewer enough information to get started building pluggable applications.
