Migration & Modernization with .NET MAUI

.NET MAUI is the evolution of Xamarin.Forms and ushers in modern development stacks with polished tooling running on top of .NET 6. Developers get to build native cross-platform apps for mobile & desktop from single codebase. Inner loops get tighter, app architectures smarter and performance faster - .NET MAUI sounds like a total win.

But what if you have existing mobile apps with Xamarin? How much work would it be to migrate to .NET MAUI? Would the Upgrade Assistants help? Would you have to drop Custom Renderers in favor of the new MAUI Handlers? And there are lots of enterprise ‘legacy’ desktop apps out there written in WinForms or WPF. What role could .NET MAUI play with app modernization? Could Blazor be brought in to modernize and share code better with web apps? What if you had investments in frontend apps with JS SPA frameworks like Angular/React/Vue – do they come over to .NET MAUI? How do .NET & JS talk to each other? Could your .NET backend APIs be Minimal and more efficient?

All this & more as we take a real-world look at migration strategies and app modernization with .NET MAUI. Catch the right waves & you’ll surf into the future with MAUI.
