TLDR; I’ve written a book about applying the MVVM pattern in .NET MAUI called “The MVVM Pattern in .NET MAUI: The definitive guide to essential patterns, best practices, and techniques for cross-platform app development”. I’m super excited about this! If you’re interested in the topic, you can order it on Amazon.

That’s it, that’s the post.

Diving Into the Details

If you’ve gotten past the TLDR;, thank you for sticking around! Let me take you on a quick journey through the pages of my latest adventure: authoring a book on .NET MAUI and the MVVM pattern.

The Genesis of the Book

Early in 2023, Packt approached me with an exciting proposal: to author a book about .NET MAUI, with a particular focus on the MVVM pattern. As I reflected on my blog’s history, I noticed that posts like “Dynamically binding RESX Resources in Xamarin Forms“, “Simple data validation in Xamarin Forms” and “Setting up a basic MVVM architecture in .NET MAUI” were consistently drawing significant traffic. Still after many years, these blogposts seem to be very valuable to many people! This trend was a clear indication of the growing interest and need for detailed information on these topics.

This realization, combined with my innate curiosity and eagerness to explore new challenges, was the catalyst I needed. I was ready to embark on this journey, to delve deeper into .NET MAUI and the MVVM pattern, and to share this knowledge with a wider audience. Writing this book became a mission to fill the knowledge gap and provide a comprehensive resource for developers seeking to master these powerful tools.

A Learning Experience for the Author

Despite my background, penning this book was a journey filled with its own set of learnings and surprises. I delved deeper into the nuances of .NET MAUI, discovering new facets of the MVVM pattern along the way. My goal was to translate these complexities into something digestible and useful for developers of all levels.
