This course teaches how to use Xamarin as a cross-platform mobile development tool to build native Android and iOS apps using C# and a .NET code base.
Students begin by learning how to use Xamarin.Forms to build Android and iOS apps using a single code base. Students will learn how to use XAML to define the UI layer for all platforms. By installing the app on both Android and iOS simulators and real test devices, it's seen how the UI renders as native controls on each platform, thereby giving the app a native look and feel.
Coverage of XAML includes how to use XAML controls to interact with the user, how to use XAML to manage the UI layout, and how to connect UI events to C# event handlers. Students will also learn how to custom the UI appearance of an app for a specific platform.
Students also learn how to interact with both local data stored on the device and how to communicate with, and process data from, RESTful services using Xamarin.Forms.
Xamarin supports Xamarin Native, which allows developers to write separate native UI code for each platform. In this course, students learn how to install and configure Xamarin.Android, and then examine Android application architectures. Exercises provide practice building Android applications in C# using Xamarin.Android and the Android designers and controls.
Students also learn how to install and configure Xamarin.iOS, and then examine native iOS application architectures. Students practice building Xamarin.iOS applications in C# using the iOS designers and controls.
The course also examines how to work with touch and location services for both Android and iOS devices.
C# programming experience is required to learn Xamarin.

I really liked the format of the class - the labs gave me a chance to apply what was being discussed in class as well as giving me a chance to work with the tool. The instructor brought a lot of industry experience to the table and was able to further clarify various examples with real experiences which I found to be invaluable.

Great class! The instructor did a WONDERFUL job - was very knowledgeable, engaging, and helpful. Great teacher, one of the best I've had. The class was very well laid out. I was skeptical that we'd be able to cover so much ground, but we received valuable, in-depth training on each section.
