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. As you follow along with the sample app, you will see how easy it is to configure your builds, to test the sample app on various iOS and Android devices on the App Center cloud, and to distribute your app to real devices.
