Monday Mornings : Extensibility in .NET 4.0

It is my great pleasure to speak at Microsoft Moday's last Monday on 22nd August 2011. I have introduced a way to develop a plugin based application with and without MEF. I have also touched some of the interfaces which Visual Studio uses for Extensibility. It has been a very good session and I have learned a lot from it.

If you are a part of the session, please get the Power Point Presentation and the updated source code.
