Xamarin helps C# developers become native iOS, Android, and Windows mobile app developers overnight. Every great front end mobile client needs a great backend service to power it, and that backend is AWS. The AWS Xamarin Mobile Services SDK helps these mobile apps instantly connect to AWS and take advantage of all the features you love such including Cloud Storage, AWS Lambda, Cloud NoSQL Database, and more. Besides helping you write your iOS and Android apps in C#, Xamarin lets you reuse existing .NET libraries and share your business logic across iOS, Android, and Windows apps. This means with Xamarin and AWS Xamarin Mobile SDK you have one C# shared backend to build and maintain, drastically cutting down development costs and increasing time to market. You'll learn how to leverage your existing .NET and C# skills to create iOS and Android mobile apps in Visual Studio with Xamarin and integrate them with the new AWS Mobile SDK for Xamarin.

You will learn:

  • How to leverage your .NET and C# skill with Xamarin to build iOS and Android apps
  • About all that Amazon AWS has to offer in their mobile SDK
  • How to easily integrate an AWS backend for you Xamarin applications
