When considering how to build iOS and Android applications, many people think that the indigenous languages, Objective-C and Java, respectively, are the only choice. However, over the past few years, an entire new tool for building mobile applications has emerged. Xamarin offers sophisticated cross-platform support for the three major mobile platforms of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Applications can be written to share up to 90% of their code, and the Xamarin.Mobile library offers a unified API to access common resources across all three platforms. In this session we will be introducing Xamarin Studio. We will be walking through the tool and showing code examples of developing mobile clients using C# and Mono (an open-source version of the .NET Framework).
