The Model View ViewModel (MVVM) is an architectural pattern that originated from Microsoft and is the base for Windows Store and Windows Phone apps, but now you can take MVVM everywhere including iOS and Android. MVVM frameworks act as the glue that ties together the apps user interface and business logic adding amazing features including data binding and commands. MvvmCross is that glue that bring all of the awesome features of MVVM to both iOS and Android development. This framework sits on top of both Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android, which enable developers to create stunning cross platform native applications all in C#. Learn what exactly the MVVM pattern is and why you would want to use it and its features including data binding. We will go through the pros and cons of multiple architectural patterns such as MVC and MVP and compare them to the MVVM pattern. Walk away with the ability to leverage the MVVM framework for optimal code reuse in creating beautiful native mobile applications. Then take your apps to the next level by using MvvmCross’s plugin architecture to add features rapidly to all of your applications.
