Wrap Up and Next Steps1:41 with Heath Hodgert
In this video we'll review what we covered in this course and what are some good next steps. There is a vibrant community of developers that are eager to help whenever you have questions.
Let's review what we covered in this course, and discuss the next steps. 0:00 We covered the basics of Xamarin, with an overview of how we can 0:05 use C# to develop cross-platform mobile applications. 0:09 We created a mobile app that worked on Android and 0:12 IOS, and we set up our development environment, so we can debug our app. 0:16 And lastly, 0:21 we created a portable class library to share code across our target platforms. 0:22 You should now have the basic building blocks in place to create your own complex 0:27 apps, but your journey with learning Xamarin doesn't end here. 0:32 You should also look at frameworks that work with Xamarin to make your development 0:36 job easier. 0:40 Xamarin.Forms is a great platform, 0:40 which allows you to describe the UI with markup language called XAML, 0:43 and it's used on all platforms to render native controls. 0:49 This allows you to write a single UI for all your apps target platforms. 0:53 MvvmCross, or MVX, is also a nice framework, which lets you share 1:00 code using an MVVM pattern that binds to each native interface. 1:05 It also has many plugins to access native frameworks to increase code sharing. 1:11 See the teacher's notes for information about these frameworks. 1:18 Xamarin has a vibrant community of developers that are eager to 1:23 answer questions and help solve problems. 1:27 So make sure to check on the Forum for help. 1:30 Check out the teacher's notes for links to the Xamarin forums. 1:33 Good luck with creating new apps using the Xamarin platform. 1:37
