Any suggestions for a good MVVM book RRS feed

  • Question

  • User385174 posted

    I'm trying to find a good book for learning MVVM - I think I now have the basics (very basic) but I'd like to find a book that would have more advanced topics such as using multiple view models within the same view and how to handle communication between the two view models. I've looked on AMAZON but not finding anything that looks good. There probably isn't one with xamarin but one with WPF would be ok. I'm coming from a Windows Forms background so have a big learning curve. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

    Do you have any recommendations for websites or what did you use to learn. Because I'm only learning, I find searching is hard because I don't know the terminology yet!!

    Some of the bits that I would have pointed you to no longer exist (e.g. old Xamarin University courses).

    Of what I can find quickly, I would start with these: Chapter 18 of https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/xamarin-forms/creating-mobile-apps-xamarin-forms/ then https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/thank-you/xamarin-ebook

    If you trawl through https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/ you will find other useful bits too

    I hope that somebody can suggest one for you. I've read almost every Xamarin book printed, plenty of design pattern books, and quite a few older Windows development books. I've still not found a book that covers MVVM well, and I really have looked for one at various points over the last 5 years.

    John https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/xamarin-forms/creating-mobile-apps-xamarin-forms/ - this was one of the first ebooks I went through to start Xamarin.
    I haven't seen https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/thank-you/xamarin-ebook - this one looks good. And yes I do definitely trawl through your third suggestions.
    Thanks for taking the time to list all that info. Much appreciated.
