Xamarin Forms: Build Native Cross-platform Apps with C#

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
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 lot of 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, Mosh, author of 9 five-star courses on Udemy, will take you on a pragmatic and step-by-step journey and teach you how to build native mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows using Xamarin Forms and C#.  In particular, you'll: Learn and understand the fundamentals of Xamarin Forms and its architecture 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 a variety of sources (file system, SQLite database and RESTful services) Implement Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) architectural pattern If you've taken any of Mosh's courses before, you know what you get: clear, concise training, without waffling or mocking around.  You get 7.5 hours of high quality content and every single minute is crafted with outstanding delivery and world-class production. Mosh doesn't create 10+ hour courses that need to be fast-forwarded or skipped.

At a minimum, you should be comfortable with classes, interfaces, events, delegates, lambda expressions and a bit of LINQ.  If you need to strengthen your fundamentals, you can watch Mosh's related courses: C# Intermediate: Classes, Interfaces and Object-oriented Programming C# Advanced: Take Your C# Skills to the Next Level FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1- Do I need a Mac to take the course? Not at all! You can use use Visual Studio on Windows to build and deploy apps to Windows and Android. You need a Mac only to build your app for iOS. And this involves simply adding a new project to your Visual Studio solution, setting it as the start up project and building it. That’s it! You don’t need to write any extra code. So, no, you don’t need a Mac to take this course or learn Xamarin Forms in general.   2- Do I need to know about Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS libraries? Again, no! Xamarin Forms provides a simple, unified API for you to build cross-platform mobile apps. When you build your app for Android or iOS, it will internally use Xamarin.Android or Xamarin.iOS to map the common user interface elements to their corresponding native equivalent. You need to know about Xamarin.Android or Xamarin.iOS only if you want to build custom user-interface elements. 30-DAY FULL MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE This course comes with a 30-day full money-back guarantee.
