Using Mvvm With Your Xamarin Apps (Hardcover) (Paul Johnson)
about this item
This is the only book available targeting the popular MVVM development framework with a focus on Xamarin.Forms. It presents clear examples of the advantages of MVVM along with step-by-step demonstrations of how to create a number of applications which gain in complexity. It covers application development for iOS, Android and Windows Phone using mvvmlight and mvvmcross as the libraries.
The Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) pattern is valued by many developers as an excellent way of creating sophisticated modern applications. Its clear separation of presentation and business logic produces a clean implementation that promotes speed, scalability and code reuse in applications with a complex UI. These characteristics have long been highly valuable to WPF developers, and now that benefit is available to Xamarin developers too.
What You Will Learn:
- How to set up and install MVVM
- The advantages and disadvantages of MVVM
- Why Inversion of Control is Important in MVVM
- Unit testing of MVVM apps
Who This Book Is For:
This book targets experienced developers with a reasonable knowledge of development using the Xamarin framework. They should already have a working knowledge of .NET and be familiar with app development. It is expected that the user will already know how to set up Xamarin studio (or Visual Studio).
