Update: I have received a great response from the community, and have now enough data to create my demos. Thanks to everyone!!

Here is your chance to get your picture on the big screen during my MIX11 presentation in April this year. I need to create a small repository of sample data for my demos. So instead of tapping in my imagination and creating dummy users (or reusing past information I already used in other demos), I thought I would appeal to the amazing community:

The public (you!) has spoken, and “Deep Dive MVVM” was selected (along with 11 other open call talks) out of 217 proposals. There were 17’000 votes! These are pretty amazing numbers, and believe me when I tell you that I still didn’t completely realize what just happened!

Sample code for my #mix10 talk online

Update: Seems that not everyone is running on the latest and greatest, which is understandable. To avoid confusion, I added the version of the framework for which these samples are available. In the next few days, I will try to port them to other versions in order to have working samples in WPF3.5, WPF4, SL3 and SL4. Please be patient, thanks!
Update 2: I reconfigured the samples to include all the external assemblies you need to run them (including Microsoft.Practices.Unity.dll, System.Windows.Interactivity and Microsoft.Expression.Interactions.dll)
Update 3: The MVVM Demo 2 (end) now contains the MVVM Light application for Windows Phone 7 that I demoed at TechDays Belgium 2010 in Antwerpen. It features sharing most of the code between the Silverlight 4 application and the Windows Phone 7 application, and creating a new view for the phone application on top of the MainViewModel.

This version has been in alpha stage for a while, and has been tested by many users. it is very stable, and ready for a release. So here we go!

MIX10Speaker

Getting ready to fly to Vegas and MIX10 is really an exciting time! It is also a very busy time, because we are working on a few projects that will be shown on stage, I have my presentation to prepare, and of course as always the book… though these days it has been a bit on the back burner to be honest ;)

I arrive in Vegas on Sunday evening around 10PM, so I won’t be able to make it to the traditional IdentityMine dinner this year. I am sure it will be fun nonetheless!
