TOPIC: MEF offers a great tool for composition and MVC offers an extensibility model designed for composition. Combining these two demonstrates a great composition design with nearly unlimited flexibility conditionally exposed as you need more features within MVC. You’ll learn how to use dependency injection (DI) to componentize tasks following single responsibility principle for more robust and testable applications. You’ll see how MVC uses custom model binders, value providers, validators, and filters. You’ll see these techniques used to pull almost all code out of the website project, giving you full flexibility in how you organize your website’s code. You’ll also see generic base classes that allow extensive reuse of controller logic and reuse of page elements. This challenging talk offers something for everyone – deeper insight into composed systems using DI, details about MVC internals, and some serious MEF examples.
