In the past, app developers who wanted to support both personal Microsoft accounts and work accounts from Azure AD had to integrate with two disparate stacks. We're bringing these two together and are making it easy to support any type of Microsoft-powered account in your application. In this video we'll give an overview of the newly available app registration, authentication endpoints, SDKs, and sign-in experience. We'll also show how to call the Microsoft Graph using access tokens issued by the unified authentication service.
Xamarin.Forms offers a way to quickly build iOS, Android, and Windows apps that look and feel native while reusing large amounts of code. Forms makes it easy to get your first app up and running, but where it really shines is accelerating the development of complex apps that put real functionality in users' hands.
In this session, we will build off the basics of Xamarin.Forms to quickly add valuable features to our app: bringing in Azure App Services to quickly add authentication and data storage, writing a custom renderer, and more. We'll see how easy it is to build beautiful UIs in XAML with the help of the new Xamarin.Forms Previewer. We'll leverage Xamarin.Forms to build a real-world application with less time, less effort, and less code.
