Video Description

Xamarin and Xamarin.Forms are the most powerful cross-platform mobile development frameworks for creating stunning cross-platform applications on the iOS and Android mobile platforms. This video course will begin by showing you how to successfully set up Visual Studio for Mac for both iOS and Android so that you can begin developing apps using the Xamarin.Forms platform. You will then learn how to debug your Xamarin applications right within the Visual Studio IDE, before moving on to learn how to build hybrid mobile applications using the Razor Templating Engine. Towards the end of the course, you will learn how to build a photo library application that interacts with the user's camera and photo album.
