See how Xamarin.Forms enables you to build cross-platform mobile apps with a shared C# codebase. Build your first Xamarin.Forms app while you learn the basics of the framework.
- [Narrator] Hello and welcome to Introduction to Xamarin Forms, brought to you by the team at Microsoft's Xamarin University. My name is Helen Miller and I'm a content developer with Xamarin University and I'll be guiding you through building your first Xamarin Forms app. You'll also hear from my colleagues, Jesse Dietrichson and Mark Smith. Jesse is also a content developer and a Xamarin trainer. And Mark Smith is the Director of Xamarin University as well as a Xamarin Forms expert.
Xamarin Forms lets you define a single UI that you can share across all of your supported platforms. This maximizes your ability to share code. You can share your UI and your business logic. In this course, you will create a new Xamarin Forms application and define your shared UI in code. You'll also see how to access platform-specific features, such as the phone dialer or camera that do not have a shared programming model integrated into Xamarin Forms. We'll be guiding you through a series of videos and have provided exercises where you can apply what you've learned.
We've also provided completed solutions for you so you can check your work. By the end of this course, you'll be able to describe Xamarin Form and its capabilities. You'll understand how to use Xamarin Forms pages, controls and its layout system and you'll use platform-specific features in a Xamarin Forms application. So with that, let's get started.
This course was created by Xamarin University. We are honored to host this training in our library.
