Learn to build native mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows using your existing C# skills
Do you have an idea for an app and want to turn that into reality?
Well, if you want to build that app for iOS, you need to know Objective-C, which is an old, C-based language. The alternative is to learn Swift. If you want to build the same app for Android, you need to learn Java. And if you want to build this app for Windows, of course you need to know C#.
Sounds like a big headache! It's not just about learning different programming languages. It's about the fact that each platform has its own UI framework which is built with a different architecture and API.
Building apps shouldn't be that painful. Is there a better way? Yes there is: Xamarin Forms.
Xamarin Forms is a UI framework for building native cross-platform mobile apps with C#. You code your app only once, and let Xamarin compiler build your app for each platform. As simple as that! You don't need to learn 4 different languages and presentation frameworks!
In this course, I'll take you on a pragmatic and step-by-step journey to teach you how to build native mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows using Xamarin Forms and C#.
In particular, you'll learn how to:
Build user-interfaces with XAML and code
Work with images
Present data in beautiful, interactive lists
Implement multi-page apps with navigation, tabs, master/detail pages
Build form and setting pages
Store and retrieve data from file system, SQLite database and RESTful services
Implement Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) architectural pattern
