NEBytes August 2014–Summer Xrossing

This event is kindly sponsored by Scott Logic:

We're pleased to announce that for NEBytes this August we are delighted to welcome Waterston's Ross Dargan to deliver a session on cross-platform development with Xamarin.

Xamarin Forms: Build native UIs for iOS, Android and Windows Phone from a single, shared C# codebase

Cross platform mobile development has never been easier. In this session Ross will show how to create a simple application for the three major mobile platforms with a single core project. He will cover the following in the hour long session:

  • An introduction to Xamarin (how it differs from other cross platform techniques)
  • Implementing the traditional "Hello World" using Xamarin
  • A quick overview of PCL vs Shared Assembly
  • Hello World using Xamarin Forms
  • A look at MVVM, and how to tackle some of the thornier cross platform mobile problems.

PLEASE NOTE ROOM CHANGE

The event will be hosted in Room 563 on the fifth floor of Claremont Tower at Newcastle University. For a detailed campus map - http://www.ncl.ac.uk/documents/Campus-Map-Print.pdf
