August Topic – Cross Platform Mobile Development Considerations
Xamarin for iOS and Android has always allowed C# developers to write shared code in the classical Model and Controller areas of an application while platform specific View (UI) code was needed. Technologies like Xamarin Forms now abstract the UI as well, making it possible to write shared code for the entire application. This capability comes with new considerations and questions:

• How is the design process different for a UI that renders correctly on all platforms and form factors? How do you lead a client through it?
• What are the limitations, and how do you guide a client through them?
• How do you efficiently organize solutions, projects, shared resources?
• What happens when a new OS update comes out?
• What automated testing and build processes are now possible? How do you test shared UI?

But most importantly: How do you sell your new cross platform capabilities to clients?

Frank is a lifelong coder. In 1981, at the age of 10, he “cracked” the Telengard game on TRS-80 Model III to get more experience points than the rest of his family. He started writing software professionally in 1995 with Allaire Cold Fusion connected through ODBC to a proprietary Unix database backend. Frank learned Java Servlets and JSP at Deluxe Check in 2000, and worked on the consumer check reordering web app. He moved to ASP.Net C# in 2002.

Frank wrote the first web application in the incentive marketing industry to connect to Sabre and use points to book airline tickets. He was a Software Architect and consultant through 2010, and has held senior management positions since then. Frank currently leads and manages the services development team at ITR-Mobility.
