Part 3: Resources, Styles and Templates

"Part 3: Resources, Styles and Templates" first covers what resources are and how we can create and use them as reusable assets that can be applied to our application.

Lesson 5

Part 5: Localization, Navigation and MVVM

"Part 5: Localization, Navigation and MVVM" first looks into what localization is and shows how we can apply culture-specific customizations to our application. We then take a look at how we can use some basic navigation concepts to provide the flow of our business features in applications, followed by a general overview and sample of the model-view-viewmodel to show how we can encapsulate our UI functional logic from its corresponding visual representation.
