Glenn Block on MEF, the Managed Extensibility Framework

Glenn Block shows you how to use MEF to allow a plugin architecture in your .NET applications. The framework is extensible enough to allow any type to be imported and exported as managed plugins, which are called parts.

Glenn Block Glenn is a PM for the new Managed Extensibility Framework in .NET 4.0. Prior to Microsoft, he worked for 10 years in various startups and ISVs wearing many different hats all related to developing software. Glenn has been writing code practically since the time he learned how to ride a bicycle. When he's not writing code, he's working on ways to build better software through learning good software design principles and methodologies. Glenn is a geek at heart and spends a good portion of the rest of this time spreading that geekdom through conferences, and the community through groups such as ALT.NET. When he's not working and playing with technology, he spends his time with his wife and four year old daughter either at their Seattle apartment or at one of the local coffee shops.
