Learn WinUI 3.0: A beginner’s guide to building Windows applications with WinUI for UWP and desktop applications
WinUI 3.0 takes a whole new approach to delivering Windows UI components and controls, and is able to deliver the same features on more than one version of Windows 10. Learn WinUI 3.0 is a comprehensive introduction to WinUI and Windows apps for anyone who is new to WinUI, Universal Windows Platform (UWP), and XAML applications.
The Learn WinUI 3.0 book begins by helping you get to grips with the latest features in WinUI and shows you how XAML is used in UI development. You’ll then set up a new Visual Studio environment and learn how to create a new UWP project. Next, you’ll find out how to incorporate the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern in a WinUI project and develop unit tests for ViewModel commands.

As you advance, you’ll discover how to leverage the Fluent Design system to create beautiful WinUI applications. You’ll also explore the contents and capabilities of the Windows Community Toolkit and learn to create a new UWP user control. Toward the end, the book will teach you how to build, debug, unit test, deploy, and monitor apps in production.
