In this course, you will learn how to build your first Xamarin.Forms app with Xamarin and C#, targeting Android, iOS, and the Universal Windows Platform. Xamarin.Forms exposes a complete cross-platform UI toolkit for .NET developers.
If you haven't tried Xamarin yet, this is the moment to get started! Xamarin is a cross-platform framework that makes it possible to build mobile apps for Android, iOS, and Windows all together at once using C# and a shared codebase.
Introduction to Cross-Platform Mobile Development
Layout in Xamarin.Forms
Resources and Styles in Xamarin.Forms
SQLite and Mobile Data
Navigation Patterns in Xamarin.Forms
Patterns for Cross Platform Mobile Development
Master-detail and Drawer Navigation
Mobile Application Architecture
Customizing the ListView in Xamarin.Forms
Design an MVVM ViewModel in Xamarin.Forms
Diagnosing Memory Management Issues
Students should have significant previous experience with the C# programming language and familiarity with object-oriented programming concepts such as inheritance and interfaces.
Outline of Xamarin Forms Training 1. Introduction to Cross-Platform Mobile Development
Reduce the amount of code you must write by sharing your business logic across platforms.
2. Layout in Xamarin.Forms
Specify the size and position of the controls in your Xamarin.Forms UI using the two most common layout containers: StackLayout and Grid.
3. Resources and Styles in Xamarin.Forms
Use resources and styles in Xamarin.Forms to manage shared values and provide a consistent UI look and feel.
4. SQLite and Mobile Data
Use SQLite to efficiently store and retrieve on-device data.
5. Navigation Patterns in Xamarin.Forms
Implement multi-page Xamarin.Forms apps using stack and tab navigation.
6. Preparing for Publishing
7. Patterns for Cross Platform Mobile Development
Use the Factory pattern, the Service Locator pattern, and Dependency Injection to access platform-specific APIs from shared code in a loosely-coupled manner.
8. Master-detail and Drawer Navigation
In this course, you'll learn how to switch between pages of content using drawer navigation, and create a master-detail UI to browse data collections
9. Mobile Application Architecture
Learn common architectural principals and styles to properly structure your mobile app.
10. Customizing the ListView in Xamarin.Forms
Customize the Xamarin.Forms ListView control using custom cells, headers/footers, grouping, and cell caching.
11. Design an MVVM ViewModel in Xamarin.Forms
Apply the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) design pattern to your Xamarin.Forms apps to improve code reuse and testability.
12. Xamarin.Forms Effects
Use Effects to customize the appearance of the native controls that underlie Xamarin.Forms elements.
13. Xamarin.Forms Renderers
Use Renderers to customize the behavior of existing Xamarin.Forms controls and create your own custom controls.
14. Diagnosing Memory Management Issues
Locate and fix memory problems in your Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android applications.
