Xamarin.Forms abstracts UI definition into cross platform Xaml, with all controls rendered natively across iOS, Android and Windows Phone. In this session you will learn how define a multi-platform UI once for each of these platforms, binding to data stored in a local DB using the Mvvm pattern, and synchronising to the cloud using Azure Mobile Services. Learn when it is necessary to dive into platform specific code and how to go about this in code and in xaml.
With modern development, more than ever both applications and environments require frequent changes. But, obtaining and modifying dev and test environments often involves significant effort and long delays. In this session we will discuss how to use Azure DevTest Lab to create and manage environments. Learn how to create a lab, share reusable templates and artifacts to quickly compose environments, set quotas and policies to optimize costs, and integrate with your existing toolchains for continuous delivery.
