Prism for Silverlight/MEF in Easy Samples. Part 1 - Prism Modules - by Nick Polyak
Microsoft Prism is a software framework whose purpose is to simplify building WPF and Silverlight applications.
Prism (together with its source code, samples and documentation) can be downloaded from Prism on the CodePlex.
Prism's main advantage lies in the fact that it allows building the WPF or Silverlight software as a set of almost independent modules that can be developed, tested and debugged separately and brought together by Prism framework to become one application.
The importance of developing software as a number of independent modules cannot be overestimated. The smaller the correlation between the modules the easier it is going to be to modify, test and debug one module without affecting the others or without any interference from the others. When it comes to team development, the module independency becomes even more significant, since multiple developers want to work on their modules with as little worry as possible about changes that others make at the same time.
Prism can be studied based on Prism documentation as well as Prism Quick Starts and other samples that can be downloaded from together with Prism from Prism on the CodePlex. There is also MS Prism documentation on line and some tutorials that can be found on the Web (e.g. Prism Tutorial by Mark J. Miller, or Erick Mork's Tutorials).
