The Complete Xamarin Developer Course: iOS And Android!
Build Cross Platform Android and iOS apps with Xamarin Forms, Xamarin Classic, Azure Mobile App Services, Rest and more
So you’ve learnt some programming, but are struggling to get an interview, let alone a job.
Or you are stuck in a low paying programming job, and want to move up to a better, more senior position.
Maybe you have never programmed before, and are looking for a way to get into programming for the first time.
But, just how do you get employers to notice you? How do you make your resume stand out of the crowd of programmers looking for work?
By learning to create cross platform applications targeting both iOS and Android from the one codebase, using Xamarin.
What is Xamarin?
Xamarin is a Microsoft owned company, that allows developers, using a C#-shared codebase, to write native Android, iOS (and even Windows and MacOS) apps with native user interfaces and share code.
This means you can create an application once, and deploy it to both Android and iOS, both which run natively on the platform. One codebase, two platforms.
Learning to create apps with Xamarin makes you more valuable to your employer or clients as a result.
What does Xamarin mean to you?
You can create native Android and iOS apps that share up to 100% code! No more writing separate versions of apps for both platforms.
This is especially useful for indie developers or small teams who may not have had the resources to target both platforms. Now they can code once, and deploy to both platforms.
Ongoing maintenance costs are reduced because you have one code base! It also means by learning one language (C#) you can now write apps for both platforms.
The Microsoft Visual Studio software package is available on Windows and Mac, and both are shown in the course. You can use and deploy Xamarin whether you have a Windows machine or a Mac.
Xamarin creates native apps unlike most other cross platform tools, meaning the code you write and deploy from Xamarin is faster, and more efficient because it can target the inbuilt features of each platform.
Because Xamarin was recently purchased by Microsoft, you can be sure that it is getting the attention of small and large companies alike, meaning more opportunities are available for developers who have learnt and can use this technology to build apps (and you will learn to do that in this course).
Some of the key Xamarin things you will learn and be able to put to use in your own apps after going through this course include Xamarin Forms, Xamarin Classic, Using Azure Mobile App Services, Consuming REST services, Implementing SQLite databases and using the MVVM pattern (very important to learn and understand).
Why enrolling in this course is the best decision you can make.
Most other Xamarin courses only focus on Xamarin.Forms or Xamarin classic. BOTH are covered in this course. Also this course teaches you all about Azure Mobile App services (cloud database integration), which no other course teaches.
Your instructor, Eduardo Rosas, is a certified Xamarin Mobile Developer with 3 years of experience using the platform, and 5 years of experience using C#. He started developing apps for Windows Phone 7 back in 2012, which, just like Windows 8 and Windows 10, use C# and XAML, and uses those two languages for building Xamarin.Forms apps.
This means you are learning from someone who has all the professional training, skills, and experience you need to teach you how to become proficient in Xamarin the right way, as fast as possible.
If you are ready to get that first paid programming job, or to move up to a more senior programming position, then this course is for you!
After completing this course, you will have the necessary skills to be able to use Xamarin and create your own apps that target both iOS and Android.
The sooner you sign up for this course, the sooner you will have the skills and knowledge you need to increase your job or consulting opportunities. Xamarin skills are in high demand, as are Azure Mobile App services, and you will understand and be able to use both after going through this course.
Your new job or consulting opportunity awaits!

Loved the information as well as the pace of the lecture. I am playing this at 1.75x speed and could easily go through the 1st 2 videos and maybe will slow down once we get to the parts I am not familiar with.

So far so good. I had basic knowledge of Universal apps 10 years ago, and am trying hard to re-spark my true passion - CODING

So far this is a great course. The instructor's pace is perfect for learning from scratch, no flaws in the project setup, and is thorough enough.

My only complaint is that I wish the videos were less spread out so I didn't have watch so many 3-5 minute videos and have so many interruptions while learning a concept. A couple solid 10-15 minute video covering each concept would be better imo.

This course is very detailed and starts with the basics, but it's a great review of them, and it helps me to know that I am not missing important information along the way. Seems very thorough, and like an excellent course!

Even though i'm running VS on a PC (my Mac is too old), i've been able to follow along and am very excited about developing my first real mobile application.

This is a great course to take if you are wanting to dive head first into the world of mobile developement. I recomend it. There are a couple of problems with information being outdated, in particular the aspects regarding MacInCloud and other Mac cloud vm solutions, they are no longer pay as you go. I suggest researching the current version of XCode that Visual Studio requires for Mac development or you will be working on Windows and Android only. While MacInCloud offeres a pay as you go solution, the required XCode version I wound up needing was only available for Big Sur, which prevented me from doing anything other than buying a mac mini, granted it was for only 300 USD, but still it was something I had to buy, which is better than the $35 USD/month MacInCoud wanted. There where a couple of other things that seemed to be changed, but it wasn't too difficult to figure out after that.
