The Next Evolution of Xamarin Training: Microsoft Learn

Avatar

Karina

We’re excited to announce two new learning paths on Building Xamarin Apps in Microsoft Learn: A free and interactive learning portal.

Xamarin University Joins MS Learn

The Xamarin University team has joined the Microsoft Learn family! Building new content and incorporating many of the great features Xamarin University has. Features including hands-on learning, quizzes to help build skills required to advance your career, and more.

Transferring Progress

If you have completed any Xamarin.Forms courses in Xamarin University, you can now transfer your progress to Microsoft Learn. To begin this transfer, simply:

Once your progress is transferred, you will see achievement badges for completed courses. You will also see a special badge if you passed the Xamarin Mobile Developer certification exam. These achievements will appear on your new Learn profile.

It is important to note that: the Skills migration feature will only be available until June 28th, 2019. That is when the Xamarin University learning platform shuts down for good. For more details, please visit our FAQ page.

Thank You!

Thanks for being a part of the Xamarin University community! We look forward to seeing you on Microsoft Learn where we hope you continue to build your Xamarin development skills. There you can also learn about other cutting-edge technologies such as cloud computing, containers, cognitive services, and machine learning. All for free!

Thanks for bringing this content over.  It is much appreciated.  I do wish you guys would've organized the Learning Paths a bit better though, insomuch that they aligned with the order you had them in Xamarin University.  Also, I hope you bring over the Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS content; but if not, at least we got this I guess.  Hope you all will continue to add additional content as well to fill in the gaps left by the content you leave behind.

Also have this question - about Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS - at the moment portal has introduction to but its bearly touches the surface of the topic! Also, without covering those parts it is very difficult to progress o Custom renderers part imho.

When can we expect a Xamarin Cerification exam offered by Microsoft? Many people I’m sure would like to become certified in Xamarin whom aren’t already. It’s crazy to think one can get certified in Sharepoint by passing a Microsoft exam but not Xamarin. Thanks — Lee

I previously earned 3 badges and both Xamarin Certifications, "Xamarin Certified Mobile Professional" and "Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer" from Xamarin University and they got expired on 22-June-2019. Now, I transfered my progress to Microsoft Learn. But, I couldn't see my Certifications and those earned badges anywhere on Microsoft Learn. Where can I find my certificates and badges?
