James Montemagno

Principal Lead Program Manager for .NET Community, Microsoft


In this mobile first, cloud first world, it's essential to have a high-performing, powerful framework available on every platform you're targeting. That framework is .NET and has expanded to every device imaginable. Whether it is server, web, mobile, wearables, or IoT, .NET is there and fully cross-platform. Developers can now leverage Xamarin to craft native Mobile and Desktop applications from a single shared code base, while building back-ends and web sites in .NET Core and ASP.NET Core that can run on any operating system to power them. Join James Montemagno in a keynote session focused on how you can leverage your existing .NET and C# skills to build apps for any platform. He'll take you through everything you need to get started building apps and a few revolutionary tools to help learn the amazing APIs packed into each platform.
