Handheld barcode - c#/Xamarin

I own two barcode scanner handheld actually, one with Windows CE and Android. At the moment i am analyzing which technology could be the best for the app I am going to do, and which one can do it. I am planning to do an app that the handheld scans a barcode => takes value as text, and then check if exist into a local database, and at the end must return a value etc etc...

Actually integration with database it's not a problem, I'm not an experienced developer and I know only C# (no idea of xamarin !), but what I am worried about is if I can use the handheld scanner cam without any complication. About Xamarin: how can make it work with Android and windows environments, just need one simple code and then it works for both OS or there is more behind?

    Xamarin is not for Windows CE devices, it's for Win10 / UWP app…
    For Android, you can use ZXing library that is free, or others (but are not free…)
