Magellan vs. WPF Starter Kit

Back to: Magellan Home

This page is meant to describe how Magellan and the WPF Starter Kit compare, and when either might be chosen.

I see Magellan as ASP.NET MVC, where the starter kit is more like the User Interface Process Application Block and ASP.NET Web Forms. The Starter Kit provides navigation via XML configuration and using the MVVM pattern, while Magellan uses MVC (plus MVVM or any other pattern/non-pattern you wish), and avoids configuration. More to come soon.

A picture of me

Welcome, my name is Paul Stovell. I live in Brisbane and work on Octopus Deploy, an automated deployment tool.

Prior to founding Octopus Deploy, I worked for an investment bank in London building WPF applications, and before that I worked for Readify, an Australian .NET consulting firm. I also worked on a number of open source projects and was an active user group presenter. I was a Microsoft MVP for WPF from 2006 to 2013.
