Developing iOS applications with C# and .NET using MonoTouch

  • February 1, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • Infusion Development

The session will show how you can use C# and .NET to build iOS applications, take full advantage of the APIs provided by the platform as well as Interface Builder and Storyboarding. From this, you will find out how to re-use your C# and .NET code across different platforms such as Windows Phone 7 and Android devices.

Chris Hardy, a Microsoft ASPInsider, is a .NET consultant focusing on MonoTouch and Mono for Android development working with Xamarin. Ever since MonoTouch was in beta, Chris has been developing and evangelising MonoTouch and was one of the first users to get a MonoTouch application on to the App Store. Speaking at conferences around the world on the subject, Chris has been a key part of the community and extended this by contributing to MonoTouch and Mono for Android books.

    Chris is clearly a man of much knowledge and he speaks very well. I would have liked to have seen a lot more of the process of putting together an app - how to do multiple views, how to put data on the screen, adding images, interacting with the system, storing information to the phone and retrieving again. I thought we got too bogged down in the creation of the interface files from the header files - something Chris admitted that we'd almost never have to do - so probably not worth all the time it was given. Also, even if Chris doesn't use Storyboarding, probably worth knowing enough to put together a simple demo of how one would use it. Also, slightly anti-Android/pro-iOS but then that's Apple love :-)

    Really interesting insight into mobile dev and to use familiar C# and and extensive code library. Obviously a little biased but a very good quality insight with working demos on iOS and Android.

    I like the perspective of using C# for development across different platforms. The main thing that I don't like is that for every platform you should create UI (bind it with logic, etc.) which is of course specific for every platform, but for example when using JavaScript+HTML5 developers don't need to think about that layer - create it once.

    I loved how the demos, they were small and concise but built a working examples from scratch. That's pretty impressive...

    Hello, this will be my first time attending this meetup group.
    Does anyone know how long does a session normally take? 1-1.5 hour excluding the possible after party beer/pub like the .Net UG? :)
    Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
