Use Visual Studio App Center with Xamarin Forms by setting up a DevOps CI/CD pipeline, set up your mobile builds on either iOS or Android, distribute your app to your developers and testers, capture analytics and crashes from your users, communicate to your users with push notifications, and run UI tests on the Microsoft cloud. You will see how to automate and manage the life cycle of your apps through Microsoft's Cloud Service, with a focus on integrating App Center into your Xamarin Forms apps with clear, practical examples. The book starts by showing you how to sign up for App Center and how to create builds, integrate analytics, and capture crashes. Along the way you will set up distribution groups and configure the build in detail. Here, the author will guide you with setting up Apple certificates and provisioning profiles. Finally, you discover how to set up push notifications in the Xamarin Forms app and test it on various iOS and Android devices on the App Center cloud.
