About the content

This course is intended to introduce experienced C# programmers to the Xamarin.Forms framework. Xamarin.Forms lets you build mobile applications using C# and then run them on the most popular mobile platforms today. If you are not familiar with the C# programming language, it is recommended that you visit this Programming with C# course to learn the fundamentals of the language before proceeding through this course.

Xamarin.Forms takes code sharing to the next level by allowing you to share not just your application logic in a cross-platform fashion, but also the UI definition. Unlike other technologies, applications that rely on the Xamarin.Forms framework are 100% completely native applications that look and feel natural on each platform.

With Xamarin.Forms, you can write your application code once, and then build a native application that utilizes that code to run on almost any iOS, Android or Windows device including Windows 10. Your business logic can be written in C# (or any other .NET capable language) and your UI can either be defined in code, or in the XAML markup language.
