Good day all, Hope this post is not too frowned upon here but am in need of some advice. Am pretty new to Windows Phone development and the .Net Framework in general so its been a steep learning curve for me. I am in the process of creating an app (While i learn Windows phone). I recently came across MVVM Light for using the MVVM pattern during the course of my project and it has given me so much trouble to set up or incorporate into my project that i have almost given up on the whole idea of developing for the platform.
Since its very much wildly encouraged to use the MVVM pattern, is it necessary to create compelling Apps with it or is there that much great advantage in using it over an Event based interaction because i plan on continuing with my event based module and then use an MVVM from scratch in my next windows phone project when i have solid knowledge on it. What do you guys suggest?. Thanks in Advance
