In Detail

This course will be your perfect guide and will help you get up-and-running with building cross-platform mobile applications with the Xamarin.Forms framework.

You will learn about the basics of Visual Studio 19, how to download and install it, and Xcode. We will cover View Model concepts and explore Data Binding as well as event handlers. We use a practical and hands-on approach to help you understand NUnit and Moq concepts effectively. You will understand how Xamarin.Forms allow you to create user interfaces that can be shared across platforms.

We start by running a program using both Android and iOS emulators and simulators, respectively. Then we will set up a solution for your cross-development project. Along the way, you will look at unit-testing your code.

By the end of the course, you'll be confident enough to design and develop cross-platform applications with the help of Xamarin.Forms.


This course is for developers who are familiar with mobile application development and want to build cross-platform applications using Xamarin.Forms.

No prior knowledge of Xamarin.Form is needed. However, a basic knowledge of C# is assumed.
