Android is a popular development target for modern apps, providing usability on phones and tablets. Xamarin is a powerful toolset that allows developers to write native Android (and iOS) apps using C#. The one area where Android is unique is in the UI design and implementation, but even there Xamarin allows the code controlling the UI to be written in C#. In this session, you'll learn how to build an Android client app that makes use of the same business logic as a WinRT (Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8.1) client app, as well as leveraging the same back-end services as the Windows, iOS, and JavaScript clients.
