It’s hard to be a .NET developer and not have heard of Xamarin. It’s now part of Microsoft’s ‘Any developer, any platform’ strategy, and allows you to write C# and F# code that runs on iOS and Android.

This talk will briefly introduce Xamarin, then dive right into some code building a cross platform app that loads data from a REST service and shows it on screen - the kind of thing a real world app would want to do. We’ll see how much code can be shared between the iOS and Android app and how much has to be platform specific, look at what design patterns can help to increase the amount of code sharing, and briefly look at Xamarin.Forms as a way of targeting 99% code reuse and leveraging existing XAML skills.

By the time we’re done you should be able to dive right into Xamarin using the free community versions of Visual Studio on Windows or Mac and be ready to play with building your first app!
