Xamarin.Forms abstracts UI definition into cross platform Xaml, with all controls rendered natively across iOS, Android and Windows Phone. In this session you will learn how define a multi-platform UI once for each of these platforms, binding to data stored in a local DB using the Mvvm pattern, and synchronising to the cloud using Azure Mobile Services. Learn when it is necessary to dive into platform specific code and how to go about this in code and in xaml.
Let's ease in the Hackathon with less "business and development" oriented topics and use Azure as a platform for the things that are important to us in the free time. So let's use Azure to host your IRC Shell, VoIP Server for your guild or a game server for your favorite games. Let your imagination run!
