Ben like most developers enjoys beer. In 2010, the craft brewery scene in STL "blew up" as the kids say (which kids, I'm not sure.) About this time Flash also died. While deciding on his future platform, Ben created a web app that listed out info about local breweries. Two years ago Ben recreated this application using the newly released Xamarin.Forms. Today Ben is recreating this application for our valued Brax viewers as a great beginner tutorial series. As for the application itself, t he application will load JSON data from a web site. This data will then get displayed in a series of Xamarin.Forms ListViews. To improve the value of the app, Ben will also explore Google Maps functionality as well as beginning animation concepts.
