    Good C# is essential. After that the Xamarin tutorials and Xamarin University should be enough to help you (although the former sometimes are patchy in terms of topic coverage).

    What is useful - especially if you are not planning on using Xamarin.Forms - is gaining knowledge of the display, navigation and resource mechanisms on the three platforms. Xamarin is tightly bound to the OS environment and doesn't hide these details. Even with Xamarin.Forms this is useful.

    i agree that C# is mandatory.but what about UI do i need to learn something for Designing the UI ?

    For Xamarin.Forms knowledge of XAML and Mvvm is essential (unless you go for a non XAML UI and create your UI in code behind).

    As I say in my previous reply - understanding the UI paradigms of the platforms is also useful/essential. There are plenty of resources available.
  • For learning Xamarin.Form , c# is mandatory because we are working on .Net platform.
    Xaml is also required for UI designing.

    So c#,Xaml and MVVM architecture are the prerequisite.
