Fabulous Xamarin Forms in Bekk Christmas →

Experienced readers will know that I recently left DIPS and joined Bekk. Bekk has an amazing new Christmas tradition, Bekk Christmas, 288 articles, 24 days. Made with 🎅 in Oslo and Trondheim, Norway! This is the first of my three contributions, showcasing F# as a fully supported language for creating cross-platform apps using Xamarin.

Fabulous is a fabulous framework for crafting apps with the ultra-simple Model-View-Update architecture, know from Elm and Flutter, using F# and Xamarin Forms.

The functional nature of F# enables new patterns, and this post will teach you to craft your next app using F#, the Model-View-Update architecture and immutable models.
