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.

CodeLens helps you track programming activity in .NET apps by surfacing information about changes to specific code elements, including when they happened and who made them. It helps to keep your dev team more productive, by avoiding costly context switches and keeping them in the IDE. In this video, Stuart Kent demos CodeLens Team Indicators, highlighting new features introduced in Visual Studio 2013 and 2015.
This talk will showcase new capabilities we have added to some of the key networking APIs for Windows apps. We will cover new features added to our JSON, HTTP, Background Transfer and Sockets APIs. These features empower you, the developer, to write apps that send or receive data faster and can efficiently process that data even when your app is not in the foreground. Speakers: Himadri Sarkar, Michael Bishop, Sidharth Nabar.
