In this video, you'll learn about some of the differences between the Tools for Apache Cordova in Visual Studio 2013 and 2015 – changes intended to make it easier for you to collaborate with Mac developers and use Node-based tools like Grunt, Gulp, Bower, NPM and Ionic. Along the way, you'll also learn how the Tools for Apache Cordova are adopting many of the same innovations found in ASP.NET 5 including Intellisense for node packages, Light Bulbs, a file-based project system and others. Finally, we'll take a quick look at how to move your VS 2013 Cordova project to VS 2015 just by copying a few files.
Xamarin Developer Evangelist James Montemagno shows you how the Xamarin Platform enables developers to leverage their C# and .NET skills to create native mobile apps for iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. With Xamarin, you use the same language, APIs, and data structures on every platform to build a single, shared C# codebase across all targets. Use your favorite IDE, Visual Studio, to build, design, debug, and deploy your iOS and Android applications.
Xamarin features deep integration into Visual Studio 2015 with full iOS and Android designers for you to build your native user interfaces. Additionally, you can take advantage of existing libraries available on NuGet and in the Xamarin Component Store to accelerate your mobile app development.
