.NET Conf 2022 Focus on MAUI Recap

MAUI finally had its day in the limelight at .NET Conf with a dedicated “focused” event. There was a lot of good content shared in a roughly 8 hours long live stream. In addition to live stream, there are recorded sessions that are also available at .NET YouTube channel. Here are some of the highlights from the event that I am excited about.

PS: I know it took a while for this post. I missed this event since I was at KCDC 2022 at the time. So, here goes.

Here are my favorites sessions from the event. I have listed more content from the event below for you to find something of interest to you.

Code Reuse with .NET MAUI

While .NET MAUI is the next generation of .NET cross-platform development, there are plenty of ways to reuse existing code & skills. Migration & reusability from Xamarin.Forms to .NET MAUI should be natural – tools can help. .NET code & styling can now be shared seamlessly between web, desktop & mobile. Blazor is very welcome in .NET MAUI and developers can do all the native mobile/desktop things with Blazor code, while reusing shared Blazor components between web/.NET MAUI/WPF/WinForms. JavaScript code with Angular or React is also welcome on native mobile/desktop apps with .NET MAUI. Let’s explore the future of portability & developer productivity with .NET MAUI.

From web to native with .NET MAUI and Blazor

Blazor uses the latest open web standards to enable full stack web development with .NET. But what if you need to build a native client app? Blazor has expanded beyond the web to enable building native client apps using a hybrid of web technologies and .NET. In this session we’ll look at the new Blazor Hybrid support in .NET MAUI for building cross-platform native client apps for mobile, desktop using your existing Blazor web UI components

Building Realtime Games with .NET MAUI

After all of the excellent topics today let’s kick back and enjoy a good gaming session. We will be looking at how we can build games in .NET MAUI and especially focussing on how we can leverage the power of SignalR to apply a multiplayer/realtime element to our games.

C# and LINQ for Data Access with EF Core

Forget magic strings, hand-written SQL queries and unfamiliar SDKs to deal with local data in your .NET MAUI apps. Entity Framework Core, also known as EF Core, is an object-mapper that empowers .NET developers to work with databases using the .NET languages and type system they know and love. In this session, learn how EF Core simplifies working with a cross-platform SQLite database in a .NET MAUI app and handles everything from complex queries to multiple updates that execute with a single line of developer code. Discover how client developers can use the same APIs that drive most REST, GraphQL, and gRPC backends on the server!
