Skill Level Beginner
- [Adam] Hello, welcome to introduction for Xamarin Android presented by the team at Microsoft's Xamarin University. My name is Adam Patridge, and I'm a content developer at Microsoft. I'll be guiding you through using activities and intents in Android apps with C# using Xamarin. You'll also hear from my colleague, Jesse Dietrichson. He's also a content developer at Microsoft and a Xamarin trainer. Most apps contain multiple pages. The most common way to implement this in Android is using one activity for each page, and stack navigation to transition between pages.
This course shows you how to code the core patterns that make activities work together. You'll see how to start activities, pass arguments, and retrieve results. You'll also see how to launch standard Android activities such as the camera or the web browser. By the end of this course, you'll be able to use intents to start, pass arguments into, retrieve results from, launch, and finish an activity, and all your code will be written in C# using Visual Studio and Xamarin. So, now let's get started.
