With the proliferation of mobile devices and the diversity of platforms on the market, developing a robust application for multiple mobile platforms is a common challenge. Xamarin’s tools allow you to develop applications for Android and iOS using C# while providing native performance and the ability to access the full native APIs. This supports the rich user experience that customers are demanding. In this session, we’ll look at the options for cross platform mobile development and take a more in depth look at Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android.

Favorite App: Mint. Mint is a personal finance app that consolidates all your various financial accounts in one place. I particularly like the ease with which I can get information across credit cards, bank accounts, and investments with a single password. They’ve done a great job of providing the right set of features on the app while keeping all the data in sync with the companion website.
