A lap around the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) - Salvador Patuel


Date & Time


17th November 2010 from 11:00am UK Time






As MEF has been incorporated to the main .NET framework on the latest iteration, it has raised a lot of interest from developers and architects around its flexibility to rapidly extend applications without recompiling. But some of them are still scratching their heads around its relationship with other frameworks like Unity, Windsor and the System.AddIn approaches. The session will show you how MEF works and how it the inversion of control (IoC) container works with the dependency injection (DI) pattern.
