You are invested in .NET and Xamarin technology stacks. But there are some pain points in the present reality. Perhaps you crave for cohesiveness, maturity and want to have more confidence in the Xamarin and Xamarin.Forms ecosystem?

Let's take a look at the future with .NET MAUI – the evolution of Xamarin.Forms. While early days, the promise is exciting with major updates to most parts of the Xamarin stack. Developers would be able to write more cross-platform code to target a wider selection of platforms, across mobile & desktop. Major design patterns include traditional MVVM and also the newer MVU pattern for additional developer flexibility. MAUI also opens the funnel to invite more developers into the ecosystem by offering choices in the UI stack – web technologies, like Blazor, are welcome towards building native/hybrid apps. The tools you know get better, projects get smarter, apps aim to be more performant and developer cycles get tighter loops. .NET MAUI is a combination of technologies to evolve the Xamarin stack for future – a state of mind for surf & fun. Let's explore!

You will learn:

  • Understand .NET MAUI stack
  • Explore modern mobile/desktop apps with MAUI
  • Explore MAUI tooling & platform interplay
