Xamarin, MAUI and the reactive MVVM between them – Webinar Recording

The recording of our webinar, Xamarin, MAUI and the reactive MVVM between them, with Rodney Littles, II, is now available. Subscribe to our community newsletter to receive notifications about future webinars.

Xamarin Forms is the .NET cross platform technology that allows you to write an application in C# and target various operating systems, primarily mobile. The recommended architectural approach for .NET applications adhering to SOLID principles is Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM). ReactiveUI is a MVVM framework based on Reactive Extensions, which are a cross language approach to functional programming. During this talk we will take a trip through Xamarin, MVVM, ReactiveUI and show the future state of Xamarin, MAUI.
