Xamarin helps C# developers become native iOS, Android, and Windows mobile app developers overnight. During this session, you'll learn how to leverage your existing .NET and C# skills to create iOS and Android mobile apps in Visual Studio with Xamarin. Besides writing 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 session will cover the Xamarin platform and how to create native iOS, Android, and Windows apps in C#. See what is new and next for Xamarin development inside of Visual Studio. You'll focus on the code, with several live coding adventures throughout the session and the latest and greatest in native cross-platform development.
