Hey everyone, it is the day you've all been waiting for.  So what makes April 8th so special? 

Today on the live webinar I added the last module to the Silverlight Recruiting Application, both in the code-behind and in the MVVM/Prism versions.  Here is a quick look at the end result:

Pretty neat, right? :)

To get some of the pre-requisites out of the way, to play with this you will need...

  • Visual Studio 2008
  • Silverlight 3
  • WCF RIA Services Beta for VS2008 (last version release for 2k8)

Ideally you'll all have downloaded the Q1 2010 release, but if not I included the assemblies for you as well that you'll need.  The database is also included as a SQL Server 2008 .mdf, so no need for any extra setup there either.  Once you have all that setup, click on the next link to...

And just so you know where this madness started, here is the entire series to follow-through:

  • Part 1- Introduction
  • Part 2- Prism, MVVM, and the Challenge
  • Part 3- Creating our Prism Shell and Code-Behind Project Setup
  • Part 3.5- Prism Background and WCF RIA (intermission)
  • Part 4- Navigation and Modules
  • Part 5- Jobs Module and View
  • Part 6- Adding an Interview Scheduling Module/View

Last but certainly not least, the video for the webinar will be available from here tomorrow.  Check back for a link. :)

I had a great time working on this project and am looking forward to the eventual updates and documenting them for everyone.  On the horizon right now is the conversion from Silverlight 3 to 4 and the possible semi-architecture of this when Prism 4 comes out.  Stay tuned!
