In a mobile-first, cloud-first world, being able to develop for different mobile platforms is a requirement for many organisations. Join Andrew Coates in an exploration of true cross-platform development using C# and Visual Studio with the Xamarin toolset. Be amazed as the same code runs on Windows (8.x, Phone and Desktop), Android and iOS (both iPhone and iPad). In the second of a 2-part series, Andrew will discuss using the MvvmCross framework to quickly build native multi-page mobile applications connected to back-end services, with a shared core and platform-specific UI, all in C#.
