Technology moves quickly; new software, platforms, and frameworks are constantly being developed, improved, and released. Exploring the landscape of developer tools and libraries that we can consume in our C# .NET apps can be exciting, but it takes time to review and evaluate the latest innovations. Fortunately, Xamarin University is here to help! We invite the industry’s top experts and developers to present guest lectures on key technologies and patterns that show us how to best use them in our mobile solutions in a live, interactive forum.

The Xamarin University Guest Lecture Series is completely free and open to everyone. Simply sign up for a free Xamarin University account, or sign in using your existing account.

James Montemagno: Access Native Features from Cross-Platform Code Using Xamarin.Essentials

Dan Siegel: Accelerate Your mobile DevOps with Mobile-BuildTools

Jim Bennett: Build Cross-Platform Apps with Immutable Models and UI with Less Code

Learn how to use Elmish, an Elm style abstraction for F# applications to build performant and stateless cross-platform UIs, with far less code than a typical C# UI. We’ll see two approaches: “half-elmish”, which uses XAML to define the UI, and “full-elmish”, where Jim will define an immutable UI completely in F#.
 

July 9 at 9:00am PT

Laurent Bugnion: Building Serverless APIs for Your Cross-Platform Apps with Azure Functions

Mobile users expect to be able to access their data at any time, from any device, which means storing your data in the cloud. Learn how to use serverless architecture to quickly create a self-contained RESTful API using Azure Functions and consume it from your cross-platform Xamarin app.
