Event Details

In this SoDA Roundtable with Microsoft Xamarin, we'll be discussing:

  • How Xamarin combines building, testing and iterating on mobile apps
  • Tools that make mobile developers more efficient
  • Demonstration: Native capabilities of Xamarin using Visual Studio

For agencies, delivering mobile strategies for clients or for internal productivity can be a challenge. Disparate tools and workflows make building, testing, and iterating on mobile apps painful especially when delivering across Android, iOS, and Windows platforms. Microsoft, with recent acquisitions of the Xamarin platform, Xamarin Test Cloud, and HockeyApp, has put together a set of tools designed to help mobile developers be as efficient as possible. And with the recent open-sourcing of Xamarin, we’ve had a number agencies inquire about the platform and its capabilities. 

During this roundtable, Colby Williams will show the native capabilities of Xamarin using Visual Studio for Mac. The audience for this is Swift, Obj. C, Java, and .Net developers with existing mobile development experience or curious about becoming a mobile developer. Attendees will leave with an understand of the capabilities of Xamarin, recent updates, similarities and differences with the other native frameworks, and how Xamarin works under the hood.
