Tara Walker, a Xamarin enthusiast and AWS Technical Evangelist, will show you how you can build great mobile apps that leverage the Cloud with Xamarin and Xamarin Forms. We will walk through using Visual Studio, Xamarin, Xamarin Forms with Shared Projects, as well as, Xamarin Forms with PCLs. The session will include a step-by-step journey in which we will build a working cross-platform mobile app to run natively on iOS, Android and Windows Phone and how to connect a data service to funnel data to the app. You'll be ready to learn how you can build your own cross-platform mobile app with Xamarin and the exciting Xamarin Forms technology which may be the key to forthcoming Mobile Development.
Mobile continues to expand and evolve at a rapid pace. Users expect great native experiences in the palm of their hands on each and every platform. A major hurdle for developers today is that each platform has its own programming language and tools to learn and maintain. Even if you tackle the burden of learning Objective-C and Java you will still have to manage multiple code bases, which can be a nightmare for any development team large or small. It doesn't have to be this way as you can create Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Windows Store apps leveraging the .NET framework and everything you love about C#.
Please join Corporate Vice President James Phillips in this session to learn how Microsoft is re-inventing Business Intelligence (BI) with Microsoft Power BI, a rapidly growing business analytics service with groundbreaking data analysis and visualization capabilities.
