Silverlight: Fixing the BookShelf Sample - by Mister Goodcat
On 2010's PDC John Papa held a session named "Kung Fu Silverlight" to show some concepts of MVVM and RIA Services. The associated source code can be downloaded here. I've often used this code as a reference for people who were looking for a nice MVVM sample. Even if it's not fully polished to the last detail, it's an excellent start to learn about the involved patterns and practices. Yesterday, when I wanted to use the sample to demonstrate something, it required me to log in. And when I did that, my browser basically crashed. Well, actually it only hung, but it didn't come back to life, so I had to kill the process.

Read on to learn how.
