Hi everyone

I wanted to know if some of you guys can post some articles, blog posts etc. that explain the MVVM Pattern in detail. There are not much explainations out there I think ( except Tutorials). I'm going to write my exam about WPF and also want to build in the MVVM Pattern. So I need some good references that are also digging a little deeper.

I think I already have read a lot of texts about MVVM, but maybe you guys got some I didn't read yet.

Would really appreciate if you would share your links to good and worth reading articles and explanations

EDIT : Thanks for the good answers ! Already knew some of the links but also found some new ones :). Voted for everyone of you

I tried to explain the basic concepts in detail in my series on MVVM. I felt the same frustration - most MVVM articles show you how to make it work, but do not explain why WPF is uniquely suited to it. I tried to build up from the required basics in WPF (binding, commanding, templating, etc) to show how that enables MVVM to work, and why it's good.

There is a very well put tutorial on MSDN: MVVM on MSDN

Also, Josh Smith's (author of above tutorial) blog is good to check if you need more details on MVVM: Josh Smith on WPF

And perhaps WPF Disciples for even more resources: WPF Disciples

You can take a look at this one (my own take at MVVM for ERP-systems) - a bit complex logic, but the sum of about one and a half years of experience with MVVM:

This post is also having some good links for learning MVVM -

Here´s a good video where Jason Dollinger builds a small WPF application based on MVVM. I found it very useful.


Yet another article about the Model-View-ViewModel Pattern.
