At some point you are going to need to get your existing code base running on .NET Core, UWP, Xamarin, or another flavor of .NET. In the past you might have used Portable Class Libraries (PCLs) or Shared Projects to accomplish this goal. The new .NET Standard 2.0 definition is implemented by .NET Core, Xamarin, full .NET, and UWP, and this means we have a much simpler and more direct way to share and reuse code across all platforms.

You will learn:

  • How to share code across different UI platforms
  • How .NET Standard works across platforms
  • How to migrate from .NET Framework to .NET Standard
