Use Visual Studio App Center with Xamarin Forms to set up a DevOps CI/CD pipeline, set up your mobile builds on either iOS or Android, set up Android and Apple certificates and provisioning profiles, distribute your app to your developers and testers, capture analytics and crashes from your users, communicate to your users with push notifications, and run UI tests on the Microsoft cloud. 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.
