A practical guide to mastering C# and .NET MAUI to build native cross-platform apps with a single codebase

Purchase of the print or Kindle book includes a free PDF eBook

Key Features:

  • Extend your skills to build cross-platform native apps for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac
  • Learn by working on a real-world project
  • Go beyond MAUI and integrate with the .NET ecosystem

Book Description:

While UI plays a pivotal role in retaining users in a highly competitive landscape, maintaining the same UI can be tricky if you use different languages for different platforms, leading to mismatches and un-synced pages. In this book, you'll see how .NET MAUI allows you to create a real-world application that will run natively on different platforms. By building on your C# experience, you'll further learn to create beautiful and engaging UI using XAML or fluent C#, architect a solid app, and discover best practices for this Microsoft platform.

The book starts with the fundamentals and quickly moves to intermediate and advanced topics on laying out your pages, navigating between them, and adding controls to gather and display data. You'll explore the key architectural pattern of Model-View-ViewModel: and ways to leverage it. You'll also get to grips with using xUnit and NSubstitute to create robust and reliable code coverage.

By the end of this book, you'll be well-equipped to leverage .NET MAUI and create an API for your app to interact with a web frontend to the backend data using Blazor and C#.

What You Will Learn:

  • Explore the fundamentals of creating .NET MAUI apps with Visual Studio
  • Understand XAML and fluent C# as the key tools for building your user interface
  • Obtain and Display data using layout and controls
  • Discover the MVVM pattern to create robust apps
  • Acquire the skills for storing and retrieving persistent data
  • Build custom controls when the supplied controls fall short
  • Use unit testing to ensure your app is solid and reliable
  • Integrate into the .NET ecosystem to build a web-based frontend

Who this book is for:

Learning .NET MAUI is targeted squarely at C# programmers, whether or not they have experience with cross-platform or mobile applications, who wish to learn Microsoft's premier platform for building iOS, Android, Windows and Mac apps using a single C#-based solution.
