Fun first day here at DevTeach. I a talk showing creating a MVVM application from scratch (using ADO.NET Data Services 1.5 CTP). Kathleen Dollard had introduced the concept earlier that day, but we teach it a lot differently so it was fun to show off building a full MVVM application in the span of 75 minutes.

The project we built in the talk is now available here at:

I the demo is a little big because I included the database (that includes some additional information). You will need Silverlight 3, ADO.NET Data Services 1.5 CTP and to attach the database (as XBoxStore) to SQL Server Express to get the demo to work. I introduced the topic of separation and isolation of contract with interfaces.  Hope it helps!
