Mobile Development with Xamarin

So you want to write a mobile app but don’t want to learn a new language like Java or Objective-C? Come learn how you can use the .Net skills you already have can be used to create applications on multiple platforms using a single code base using the development tools from Xamarin.

Mike Brocchi is a software engineer that has been working in the Pittsburgh area off and on since 2003. He is passionate about learning  and playing with new technologies. When he’s not in front of his computer he’s spending time with his family or golf clubs.

Local startup YourTalentAgents.com is sponsoring the pizza this month.  "We get it: You're tired of calls and emails about jobs you don't like from people you don't know.  It's annoying and a waste of time.  YourTalentAgents.com is changing this for good."

    Can someone video this one? I'm interested in it, but you're too far away now. Lol

      Rich - maybe MS could sponsor a PGH DOT NET Skype credit or premium subscription for us?

      They kind of do, we actually have an Office 365 account which enables us to host Lync meetings with up to 250 people. Online L&Ls were an idea we were kicking around also but we wanted to get the HoLs rolling first.

    The talk was very informative. Since iOS, Android, and Win8 all run on tablet footprints, I think it may lean into cross-platform touchpad development as well, but based on the demo and the costs, Xamarin is not likely the solution for us.

    Though I am not doing mobile development right now, it was nice to see what to tools are available for cross platform development.

    I 3rd a request to record this one. I'd love to go, but I have a baby on the way and my SO wants to do baby things tonight.
