Xamarin.Forms is a new mobile development platform for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone unveiled by Xamarin in May 2014. Xamarin.Forms can help you get started with writing applications for iOS, Windows Phone, and Android, and this book will show you how to get up to speed using Xamarin.Forms. However, to truly build a solid mobile application architecture while still taking advantage of the power of the Xamarin.Forms toolkit, you need to bring some new patterns and tools to your code. Learning how to apply architecture patterns and best practices will ensure your Xamarin.Forms mobile app is feature-rich, polished, and has a solid, maintainable, and testable codebase. This step-by-step guide will help you take your apps to the next level by teaching you how to connect to online web services and APIs, handle offline data storage, synchronization, UI responsiveness, UI testing, and more. Starting with building a simple and complete GUI using Xamarin.Forms, you will learn the core concepts of MVVM and how to bind any data type or data structure. This will be followed by the Xamarin.Forms dependency services and leveraging more advanced dependency services and strategies. Next, you will be taught how to leverage more advanced Dependency services and strategies. We will then go on to explore the custom renderers and value converters. Then, you will learn the best patterns and practices for connecting to an API from a mobile app. Next, you will learn how to authenticate the API from a mobile app using the best practices. Then, you will learn how to make a seamless and performant experience in a mobile app with the use of offline data. This will be followed by unit testing of a Xamarin.Forms app. Next, you will learn how to automate the UI side of testing a mobile app built with Xamarin.Forms. Lastly, you will learn the basics of adding a wearable app to a mobile app built in Xamarin.Forms.
