Introducing Shared Class Library – Multi-target Xamarin.Forms and .NET MAUI from a single project

Very happy to announce the availability of the Shared Class Library project template, a library that targets both Xamarin.Forms and .NET MAUI from one single project.

We all know that .NET MAUI is an evolution of Xamarin.Forms targeting .NET 6 (as of this writing), a cross-platform UI stack (native UI) targeting the Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows platforms to complement the .NET toolchain (SDK & Workloads), and a single base class library (BCL).

MVVM – Made Easy with Microsoft MVVM Toolkit – Part 1

The Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) is a software design pattern that is structured to separate program (business) logic and user interface controls. The main advantage is, that the program logic is fully unit-testable as it functions independently of the UI controls (loosely coupled). It is very popular among the developers of XAML-based UI frameworks such as WPF, UWP, Xamarin.Forms, .NET MAUI, WinUI, and even other 3rd Party frameworks such as Uno.
