You will learn how to manage application flow, create your workspace, and set up your database. Next, you will see how to access data for handling CRUD operations and define the necessary API endpoints. Further, you will build a mobile application with Xamarin.Forms, both in iOS and in Android. You will also understand the deployment and testing process as well as how to build a real-time leader board using ASP.NET MVC and SignalR. Finally, you will understand how to publish your source code on GitHub from Visual Studio 2017. You will: Understand the basic concept and fundamentals of the technologies used for building the applications Set up your development environment Create a SQL database from scratch Implement a data access layer Define REST service endpoints using the Web API Deploy, test, and debug iOS and Android applications Push your source code to GitHub
