In this chapter, we have discovered what the MVVM architectural pattern is and the benefits of using it when developing WPF applications. We're now in a better position to decide which applications to use it with and which not to. We started looking into the various new ways of communicating between the various components of this pattern and also investigated the most common ways of organizing our source code. We are now ready to start setting out our own application structures.
In the next chapter, before we properly get started building our application, we'll look at several methods of the sometimes tricky task of debugging our data bound values. We'll discover other useful tips and tricks that we can use to help us to iron out any problems that may occur in our applications so that once we start building, we'll be able to avoid wasting time with problems that may arise.
