Presented by Ken Lefevre

Cleveland Microsoft Office

The Xamarin Platform includes an implementation of the Common Language Runtime that runs on iOS and Android plus a variety of developer tools that enable you to leverage your existing skills as a developer for the .NET platform to build applications for all the major mobile devices. This presentation will begin with an overview of the tools and technology that make up the Xamarin Platform, then we will compare and contrast them with the most popular competing technologies. The bulk of the presentation will comprise demonstrations of the key features of Xamarin, as well as time to answer your specific questions.

Ken LeFebvre has been building solutions with Microsoft technologies for twenty years, and works for the MacroPoint division of Bennett Adelson. In addition to more conventional ASP.NET solutions, he has most recently been the lead developer for MacroPoint’s mobile apps, and has been exploring the capabilities of Xamarin as a way to consolidate the three mobile apps they support into a single codebase.
