May Topic – MVVM and Prism in Xamarin Forms

MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) is a popular design pattern for cross-platform applications, taking advantage of XAML binding to decouple UI and application logic. Although Xamarin Forms supports some facets of MVVM out of the box, a mature framework like Prism – first developed by Microsoft for WPF applications – facilitates development and gets you closer to true separation of concerns.

This talk will cover the basics of MVVM, how Prism implements it and how it differs from Xamarin Forms, and major changes in the recent 6.3 release.
