Xamarin makes it possible for .NET developers to build native mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows with C# (and F#)! In this talk Xamarin MVP Ed Snider will show how you can leverage your .NET skills and tools (like Visual Studio) to tap into the wonderful world of native mobile development. Learn how Xamarin works, how to use it, and how it can be combined with common patterns and practices to share code across multiple platforms. We will also look at the Xamarin.Forms framework which allows you to build native mobile apps with shared UI code using C# and XAML.
