Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Jared Rhodes, and welcome to my course, Creating Responsive Layouts in Xamarin.Forms. I'm a Microsoft MVP for the Azure Platform and a Xamarin certified developer at QiMata Technologies, a consulting and training firm based out of Atlanta, Georgia. In this course, we're going to look at the different supported devices and Xamarin helpers for responsive development, while also looking at how to use both XAML and CSS styling in Xamarin.Forms. Then, we will discuss the different layouts provided by Xamarin.Forms. Layouts are the controls within Xamarin.Forms that you can use to create a responsive look and feel without worrying about the underlying platform. Borrowing from both XAML and modern web layouts, Xamarin.Forms layouts provide constructs to easily create advanced responsive layouts. Once we complete our discussion on the basics of Xamarin.Forms layouts, we will move into some more advanced use cases, nesting stack layouts, creating a calculator using a grid, and creating catalogs using flex layouts. By the end of this course, you'll know the concepts of the out‑of‑the‑box layouts in Xamarin.Forms well enough to get started building your first project. I hope you'll join me on this journey to getting started with app development with C# and Xamarin with the Creating Responsive Layouts in Xamarin.Forms course at Pluralsight.
