Microsoft UK recently ran the UK Future Decoded Event where I was the owner of a half-day track of sessions on Visual Studio for Cross Platform Applications. I described that track as;
There’s a tension between an app developer who wants to get the most from their investment in skills and tools and a device/platform vendor who wants to make sure that apps are really shiny on their devices.
What’s a dev to do? Build native for iOS/Android/Windows and take the hit on multiple code-bases? Go lowest, common denominator and build hybrid? Or…is there another way? Join us for an afternoon of getting bang up to date on how Visual Studio works with Xamarin and Cordova to get your code across as many devices as possible without compromising the user or developer experience.
The first session of the day was Stuart Lodge of Cirrious who’s also the creator of the MvvmCross framework for cross platform apps.
Stuart delivered a great session entitled “Visual Studio & Xamarin: Native C# Apps on iOS & Android devices” and the video is now available for you to watch below;
