Creating iOS and Android Native Mobile Apps in C# with Xamarin – II

In this double session you will go from having no knowledge of iOS, Android, or Xamarin to creating your very first iOS and Android applications in C# powered by Xamarin. Join Twilio’s Brent Schooley, Olo’s Greg Shackles, and Xamarin’s James Montemagno on a fully interactive live coding adventure! These three will give you a fully guided tour of how Xamarin delivers a no compromise platform for developers to create fully native iOS, Android, and Windows applications all in C#! Learn how to leverage a single code base to share up to 90% of code across all platforms and take advantage of the native features of each OS. This session breaks down into three full interactive parts:

Part 1: Introduction to Cross Platform Development in C# with Xamarin (Brent)

Part 2: Creating your first iOS App in C# with Xamarin (Greg)

Part 3: Creating your first Android App in C# with Xamarin (James)
