Workshop Feature: Xamarin – Cross Platform Application Development

Ladies and Gentlemen! Developers and Software Engineers! We’re nine weeks out from SyntaxCon 2018, and this week we kickoff a series of eight posts featuring our scheduled workshops and sessions.  In the spotlight this week is our Workshop on Cross Platform Application Development via Xamarin.

What is Xamarin?

In today’s software development space, software companies and individual developers face a difficult challenge in supporting the various platforms available to their users.  More often than not, the solution to this challenge has been to create individual platform specific versions of their software products.

Although this solution works, it introduces additional time and complexity in maintaining and extending their software which increases the overall cost to deliver solutions.  For software companies and individual developers facing this challenge, Xamarin provides a viable solution to reduce complexity and cost.

Who Can Benefit from this Workshop?

With Xamarin, software companies and individual developers have the tools needed to deliver cross platform solutions that target iOS, Android, Windows (UWP), and Mac from a single codebase. (More platforms are in development)  Using C#, Xamarin, and proper architecture, application solutions can share 75% of code across all targeted platforms.  By adding Xamarin Forms to share UI (User Interface) code, application solutions can share over 96% of code across all target platforms.
