Come celebrate Xamarin 3 with cake, pizza, and learning how to create iOS and Android applications in C#. Xamarin 3 was just announced including some amazing new features and enhancements such as the brand new iOS Designer, Xamarin.Forms, and support for Shared Projects. This month we will deep dive into iOS and Android Development in C# with Xamarin and all of the latest features that were just released. There will be something for everyone in this content packed meetup no matter if you are new or have been developing with Xamarin for some time. Here are just a few topics that we will cover.
Designing iOS Apps: If you work in Visual Studio or Xamarin Studio, the new iOS Storyboard Designer is ready to make designing iOS applications a breeze. Integrated directly in the IDE and built as a designer for developers to work how you want have always wanted it to work.
Sharing More Code: File and project linking are no fun, and that is where PCLs and Shared Code projects come in to alleviate all of this pain. Full support is now built right into Xamarin Studio for these projects and a brand new NuGet package manager makes managing apps easy.
Xamarin.Forms: We already share all of our business logic, but what about the user interface? That is where Xamarin.Forms API comes in. We will see how to create your first Xamarin.Forms app to share all of your native user interface and business logic between iOS, Android, and Windows Phone!
So Much More: That is just the start! Xamarin 3 is packed full of even more features and enhancements that we will cover.
