Mobile applications are one of the fastest growing areas of development, and the mobile framework of choice is Xamarin. This course starts at the beginning and takes you through intermediate to advanced topics.
It is critical to create mobile applications with native functionality, while at the same time maximizing reuse across all mobile platforms. Xamarin.Forms allow you to create native iOS and Android apps (as well as apps for other platforms) written in C#, and with nearly 100% reuse across platforms. In this course, Building Your First Mobile Application with Xamarin.Forms and Visual Studio 2017, you'll use free software to learn how to write Xamarin.Forms applications with no prior mobile programming experience. First, you'll explore how to layout the pages of the application. Next, you'll cover how to work efficiently with data and resources. Finally, you'll learn how to utilize behaviors and internationalization of text. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the necessary skills and knowledge in creating native cross-platform mobile apps.
