Creating Cross-Platform Mobile Apps Using C# with Xamarin


iOS and Android present great opportunities for developers. Unfortunately, many developers shy away because of the unfamiliar development environment. It doesn’t have to be that way! Come learn how to build Android and iOS applications using C# with Xamarin 3.0. You’ll learn how to use your existing C# skills to build apps for these platforms (and Windows Phone+Windows 8!) from within the same solution in Visual Studio! You’ll also see how Xamarin.Forms allows you to achieve up to 100% code sharing between iOS, Android, and Windows Phone while still preserving native performance and look & feel.
