Topic:  Introduction to Cross-Platform Mobile Development with Xamarin

Speaker: Keith Rome

 

More and more users are demanding access to internet applications and services from their mobile devices, and increasingly they have come to expect nothing less than a true “native” experience. This can be difficult enough when supporting a single mobile platform, but nowadays it is common for most apps to require support for at least both iOS and Android, and on occasion Windows Phone as well. To avoid a need to maintain multiple product codebases, many companies are turning to cross-platform solutions. And while “hybrid” technologies such as Cordova / PhoneGap are helpful, many companies want the best user experience possible – and that means real native apps. Xamarin is a different kind of cross-platform technology that allows us to share code between different devices and platforms – while still offering a native user experience. In this presentation we will discuss what the Xamarin stack has to offer, and how you can get started using it.
