This Month's Meeting Information
Title: Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) is Microsoft's solution for easily creating a plugin-style framework for your application. By handling the assembly management and reflection to find parts, MEF makes it virtually effortless to create an application that's extensible at run-time and, if you publish your API, allows 3rd parties to add extensions to your applications. Because MEF enforces a vertical separation of concerns and can only interact with your application through a limited API, application maintainability and stability are generally easier to achieve.
