Refreshing is out, real time data is in. No longer is it good enough to expect your users to pull to refresh or reload an app to get the latest data from your service. Modern frameworks have made it much easier to add real time functionality to anything, from web pages to mobile apps. SignalR, ASP.NET’s real-time data framework, is typically used for real time communication on the web, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Learn to leverage this popular and easy-to-use framework to create apps that work real time. Speaking of apps, what better framework to use than Xamarin? Cross-platform C# mobile development is a .NET engineer’s dream, and Xamarin has made it even easier with Xamarin.Forms, a framework that can be used to create applications for all three major mobile platforms – Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Using the power of Xamarin and SignalR, you can create fast, maintainable mobile apps with real time data – and do it fast!
