Where to start?

So I decided to develop a fairly simple cross platform app for Android and iOS. I have an elementary grasp of C# and the idea of object-oriented programming but that's all. I know absolutely nothing about Android, iOS, Java, Objective-C, or Xamarin. Though some unguided digging led me here, I'm not sure if this is the right place for me either. There is a lot to learn but I'm pretty confused as to where to start for accomplishing my goal. I could really use some directions, guys.

Thank you in advance.

Oh and please excuse me if I posted this in the wrong place.

    Thank you for all the awesome sources which provided me with valuable insight. For the record, after a little bit of reading, especially Fredy's guide, now I actually tilt towards standard web technologies for the task.

    The problem is, that you won't be able to create the "real app-feeling" with "standard web technologies" yet.
    And... you also have to invest time to go with "standard web technologies" and then - maybe - note, that it does not meet your needs :smirk:
