    Xamarin Intro

    With Xamarin native apps are developed for Android and iOS devices based on a shared code base in C#. Apps built with Xamarin use standard native user interface controls that not only look like the user expects, but also behave that way.

    Xamarin Development

    Xamarin apps can access the full API of the underlying platform including platform specific things such as Augmented Reality Kit from Apple and Android Multi-Window mode. In addition apps developed with the Xamarin Framework platform use specific hardware acceleration and are compiled to native code resulting in optimal performance.


    The course starts with an introduction to the Xamarin tooling such as device emulators and the integration in Visual Studio. Next attention is paid to the principles of Cross Platform Development with App Navigation techniques, Xamarin.Forms and Portable Class Libraries. Markup in XAML, the various User Interface elements and layout options are also discussed.

    Data Binding

    Then the MVVM Architecture, the use of App lifecycle events and the data binding between user interface elements and the underlying code are treated. Page navigation is also covered here.

    Triggers and Behaviors

    Triggers and Behaviors are also part of the course program. Triggers allow you to declaratively specify actions in XAML that will be executed when certain conditions are met. Behaviors allow functionality to be added to User Interface Controls without subclassing them.

    REST API Integration

    Attention is also paid to the integration of REST services for displaying and changing data via remote calls from a device. Additionally asynchronous calls with the async and await mechanism are covered.

    Database Access

    Also part of the course is data access with a local SQLite data source. Finally dependency injection is treated and a number of advanced topics such as messaging and the Xamarin.Forms shell are discussed.
