A Whirlwind Tour of Xamarin (redo)

  • Jun 10, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Brent Schooley, our local Xamarin and Microsoft MVP, will be presenting. 


Xamarin allows C# developers to target multiple platforms with the
language and tools they love. Whether you’re looking to build
cross-platform mobile applications targeting iOS and Android or if you
are hoping to build the next great Mac application, Xamain has you
covered. In this session, I’ll briefly cover where Xamarin came from
(believe it or not it has been around since 2009!) and where it’s
heading before launching into a tour of its features and workflows.
I’ll show you how to use Xamarin Studio and Visual Studio to build iOS
and Android applications. You’ll leave with enough knowledge to decide
for yourself (or convince your boss!) that Xamarin is right for your
