This talk will demonstrate how to build hybrid mobile apps that mix native controls and HTML content in C#. It will show how to use Xamarin Studio and the open source Razor ASP.NET view engine as a standalone templating system for generating HTML in Android, iOS and Windows Phone applications. The talk will also cover best practices for hybrid app development, techniques for facilitating communication between C# and embedded HTML content, as well as strategies for migrating mobile websites and other hybrid solutions to Xamarin.
