      This was a nice informative one. Can we have Visual Studio 2013 Community edition have Xamarin enabled for individual edition as well.. The current xamarin apps can be build from Visual Studio only for Xamarin Business or higher versions...

      You spoke about using less files in the project. But when I try to Add New Item there is no option to add less files only css files. Even when I manually added the less file under css folder and referenced the css in the index.html, but css is not auto generated. What am I missing, is there a process that needs to be followed to get less/sass files to work in this project?

      Interesting. I notice she is using an Apple Mac with Parallels to run Windows and Visual Studio. Like to see somebody do a "how-to" to set this up.

      Very interesting! I believe there is a bright future for Xamarin and Apache Cordova development in Visual Studio 2015. 

      Hope you guys will be making more videos on both technologies.
