Description

Xamarin.Forms is the preferred way for Microsoft developers to build applications that run on Android, iOS, and Windows. To use Xamarin.Forms for real applications that meet today’s requirements for flexibility and testability, you need to structure code according to industry-standard architecture guidelines. In this course, Building an Enterprise Mobile Application with Xamarin.Forms, you will learn how a real-life application is built with Xamarin.Forms. First, you will see a proposed architecture that promotes code-reuse as well as testability and maintainability. Next, you will learn how MVVM can be used in Xamarin.Forms. Then, you will create loose-coupling through messaging patterns and dependency injection, which are integrated in the proposed architecture. By the end of this course, you will have a good understanding of a real-life application architecture for Xamarin.Forms applications.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Gill Cleeren and welcome to my course Building an Enterprise Mobile Application with Xamarin. Forms. I'm a freelance solution architect focusing on mobile and web projects. Xamarin is Microsoft's solution for building mobile applications that run on any device and any platform. Building mobile apps is one thing. Building a mobile application for an enterprise is another. It requires a solid architecture that must be easy to test and maintain in the long run. This course will teach you how you can build an enterprise mobile application with Xamarin. Forms. You will learn how the MVVM pattern can help you and you'll see how dependency injection fits in as well. The final application architecture can be used as a starting point in your own applications. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include understand what an architecture for a real live mobile app built with Xamarin. Forms should look like. Get a deep understanding of the MVVM pattern applied in Xamarin. Forms. See how dependency injection and messaging can help us write more loosely coupled code, learn how you can do navigation in MVVM without breaking your testability. By the end of this course, you'll have a good understanding of how you can build an enterprise mobile app with Xamarin. Forms. This course does expect some Xamarin. Forms knowledge. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how you can build an enterprise mobile application with Xamarin. Forms with the Building an Enterprise Mobile Application with Xamarin.
