As the mobile landscape continues to expand and evolve managing multiple code bases in different programming languages and development tools can become a nightmare fast. In this session you will learn about the technology that Xamarin offers and how it works to enable developers to leverage a shared C# code base across all mobile platforms.
James will walk you through developing, designing, deploying, and optimizing your first mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows from a single code base.

Windows 10 makes it easier than ever to develop apps for the Universal Windows Platform with just one API set and one app package to reach all Windows 10 devices – PCs, tablets, phones, and more. In this session, we will build a simple Windows 10 app from scratch and see how to design the app so it renders properly no matter what device is used to view it. We'll then add additional functionality to the app and see how to connect to Azure, add offline data access, design tiles (including secondary tiles and lock-screen apps), badges, and toast notifications, and work with maps, cameras and video.
