IL - Cloud Workshop: App Modernization

Course Overview

A cloud workshop is a 1-day event that consists of an overview of the technology, a deep dive whiteboard design session and Hands-on lab where participants will a subset of the solution.

In this workshop you will learn the basics on how to use Visual Studio tools for Xamarin to build fully native Android, iOS, and Windows apps, sharing between 60 – 90% of code across device platforms. Xamarin apps are fully native—native UI, native performance and 100% access to all device platform APIs. Anything you can do in Objective-C, Swift, and Java you can do in C# with Xamarin, only much faster thanks to code sharing and reuse. We then introduce PowerApps, Microsoft’s Business Application Platform, which enables non-developers to build intelligent, scalable apps for desktop and mobile devices on top of cloud and on-premises services without writing code. We then turn our focus to Microsoft Flow which works with PowerApps to provide process and task automation.This workshop includes: Whiteboard design session and Hands-on lab
