Also get a peek at how you can leverage other web frameworks in .NET MAUI.
👉 📆 Day 3
Best Practices for Cross-Platform .NET 8 Applications
You shouldn’t need to ever write code from scratch for commonly used functions. Microsoft has extracted a host of capabilities outside of ASP.NET and made them available through Microsoft Extensions – covering hosting, logging, configuration, etc. In turn, the open-source Uno Platform Extensions are based on Microsoft Extensions and enable cross-platform scenarios for .NET applications such as Navigation, Localization and more. In addition, we will cover the new Reactive extension for cross-platform scenarios inspired by Kotlin Flows, Scala Streams and Reactive Extensions In this session we will show how you can bootstrap a new Uno Platform application and get started with proper architecture in minutes, for work that would usually take weeks to do.
Design UI agnostic cross-platform applications with .NET
One of the first questions I hear from my clients, when they are starting developing a new cross platform applications with .NET, is: What framework should I use? Xamarin.Forms which is stable, MAUI which is the new child but still missing some things. But wait there is also Uno Platform and AvaloniaUI. The question is not wrong but maybe you could approach the problem in a different way? What if you could design your application to depend as little as possible on the UI framework thus making it easier to migrate from one UI framework to another without the need to rewrite everything. In this session I will show some strategies that you can use when you are developing a cross-platform application with .NET that should make testing, maintenance and migration easier .
Uno Platform 5.0: Elevate Your Cross-Platform .NET Development with .NET 8
.NET ecosystem prides itself on all the options it provides to developers. The open-source Uno Platform is yet another option you have to create cross-platform .NET applications. Uno Platform 5.0 is built on top of .NET 8 it enables you to quickly create UI-rich and data-driven applications everywhere .NET runs using either XAML or C# Markup. Come learn what Uno Platform is all about, including the latest advancements for .NET 8, .NET MAUI Embedding, Model View Update eXtended (MVUX) reactive pattern, Figma integration, Hot Reload and more.
Unleashing the Power of Cross-Platform Development with Avalonia UI
Join Mike as he delves into the exciting world of cross-platform .NET development powered by Avalonia UI! This session will demonstrate how Avalonia UI enables you to create sleek, modern applications running seamlessly across Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android and WebAssembly. After discussing Avalonia UI, Mike will showcase how to revitalise legacy WPF applications and bring them to life on macOS and Linux using Avalonia XPF! Whether you're an experienced .NET developer or just starting your journey, this session is your ticket to embracing the future of cross-platform development.
💫 Introducing Grial Studio for .NET MAUI
Explore a new, faster way of creating beautiful apps with Grial Studio for Visual Studio.
