This lesson will dispel these differences, so you can understand how MVVM relates to the other two and what problems it's trying to solve. By the end of this lesson, you will be primed with a solid understanding of MVVM, it's goals and relationship to the other patterns.

  • The motivations for MVP and MVVM over MVC.
