One Lang to Rule them All: Building Native iOS, Android & Windows Phone Apps in C# with Xamarin  -  An introduction to developing mobile apps in C#/.Net using Xamarin. - Mike Stonis, EightBot

Xamarin is a mono framework for iOS and Android that includes C# wrappers for native API bindings. This allows developers to develop native iOS and Android apps in C# using the mono (.Net) framework. Xamarin currently supports all features of .Net 4.5.1, and all API's in iOS7.1 and Android API level 19.

    In the meetup I mentioned the incentives that Xamarin provides to MSDN subscribers and a question was raised on if the conditions had changed recently.

    Unfortunately, it does appear that Xamarin a reigned in the benefits they are now providing.

    First, they no longer provide free access to Xamarin University, but do provide free access to dedicated training material.

    Secondly, and more importantly to start ups, they have now excluded BizSpark and DreamSpark MSDN subscriptions from the incentives. So if you are a member of these schemes you no longer get the discounted Business license or access to the training material.

    Personally, I think this is a huge mistake by Xamarin, but its their company and their business plan.

    That said, if you are a BizSpark or DreamSpark member, you can always try lobbying the Microsoft liaison to get you a free license!!

      Go to for resources. They have a lot of documentation, videos, discussions, examples etc available; and of course Google will always dig up information too.
