In this episode, I interview James Montemagno from Xamarin. If you haven't heard the exciting news (some of the best news of the year!) Xamarin not only joined Microsoft, but has awesome Visual Studio integration, and now an iPhone simulator that runs on Windows as well. Couple this with our blazing fast Android emulator and you've got a full cross platform dev suite on Windows right from Visual Studio, or using Xamarin Studio from a Mac.
