Migration MAUI Workshop

Modernization Through Migration:
A .NET MAUI Workshop

Firsthand experience of migrating legacy mobile and desktop applications to .NET MAUI and more

Thursday, September 7, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. ET - 1:00 p.m. ET

To keep developers like you productive, today’s .NET world inhabits solid frameworks, matured tooling across platforms and a rich ecosystem. Modern .NET runtimes empower developers to go deep on specific platforms, while sharing code with cross-platform solutions.  With .NET 8 around the corner, app modernization must be top of mind for many of you.

.NET MAUI is the modern, front-end application framework for building engaging mobile and desktop projects. While being great for building new, modern-looking applications, is it also suitable for migrating legacy mobile and desktop apps to it? App migration could be a monumental task as it requires not only careful planning, but also knowledge of breaking changes between platforms. If you’re thinking about a Xamarin, WPF or WinForms migration don’t miss the opportunity for real-life practice with industry experts.

Join us on September 7, 2023, at 9 a.m. ET for a live application-building workshop, where we’ll modernize existing legacy applications through migration to .NET MAUI. Throughout the workshop you’ll learn how to avoid potential roadblocks, master the basic concepts behind .NET MAUI and Blazor Hybrid and learn about the possibilities of sharing code between web and native mobile / desktop applications.
