Building Cross-Platform Applications with .NET MAUI

.NET MAUI (Multi-platform App UI) is a framework that allows developers to build applications for Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS from the same codebase. It provides an extensive library of controls and components that can be used to create complex user interfaces.

You’ll begin with the basics of MAUI project structure and learn about XAML views, page types, and layout types. Next, you’ll look at MAUI application lifecycle, data binding, and gestures detection. You will then learn how to use different types of triggers including property, data, event, state, and multi-triggers. Next you’ll cover animations, drawings, and applying themes to MAUI apps. Then you’ll learn about MAUI architectural patterns, and finally, you’ll learn how to use Blazor in MAUI.

By the end of this course, you’ll have essential skills to build native applications for various types of platforms including mobile devices and desktop computers.
