The MVVM Light Toolkit is now deprecated. We strongly recommend looking into the Microsoft MVVM Toolkit, an open source project from the Windows Community Toolkit, as the successor of MVVM Light.

Here you will find a lot of information about various projects I am working on.

I work as Senior Cloud Developer Advocate for Microsoft Azure after almost 10 years spent working for IdentityMine and Valorem, two leading firms in Microsoft technologies. I code in Azure, .NET, Windows, WPF, Xamarin (iOS and Android), ASP.NET (Core and Classic).

On my free time, I write for technical publications such as MSDN Magazine, publish technical videos on YouTube and Microsoft Channel 9, and my blog is on blog.galasoft.ch. I am a frequent speaker at conferences such as Microsoft Ignite, Microsoft Build, TechEd, VS Live, Techorama and many other international events.

Prior to joining Microsoft, I was a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Windows development from 2007 to 2017, a Microsoft Regional Director from 2013 and a Xamarin Most Valuable Professional from 2015. I am also the author of the well-known open source framework MVVM Light for Windows, WPF and Xamarin.

If you want to get in touch with me, my direct messages are open to the public on my Twitter profile.
