MEF and MAF Resources

I got a Twitter on MEF resources, so I wanted to at least post the resources slide for my MEF/MAF talk. My big question, is what else do you want. Do you want more technie stuff on the core, more extensibility details, more stuff on the WPF editor, more on scenarios and value proposition, to know why I think composability is the most important thing since OOP/OOD (yep, I rank it above generics), or something else entirely? I think there’s at least a half dozen people trying to get the right stuff out on this, but we don’t need to shotgun this.


I actually modified this a bit if you were in the talks, but it’s a start – definitely not the final word:
