Using Xamarin to take Existing .NET Apps Cross Platform

46 minutes, 48 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

This is the last of a four part series on building cross platform apps using Xamarin and C#. In this episode Robert is joined by James Montemagno, a developer evangelist at Xamarin, who discusses how to mobilize an existing .NET Silverlight app by reusing the existing C# code on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. We will see how the Xamarin .NET Mobility Scanner and Portable Class Libraries can be leveraged for easy mobilization of the app and maximum code reuse between all platforms.

If you missed parts one, two and three, you can view them here, here and here.

  • If you are willing to allow ports to ios and Android then why not Linux? At work C# can't be considered because many of the servers are Linux. Allowing C# to port to Linux would be a game changer.

    The problem is Xamarin is too expensive for solo developers. At least for me in Brazil.

    Unless Microsoft buys out Xamarin and makes it a part of studio. I rather go with other solutions that are free

    Microsoft needs to buy out Xamarin if they want to compete in the mobile market.

    In my opinion, the only way Xamarin will reach to solo developers is if Microsoft acquired them or they change their pricing model significantly. $1000/per developer/per PLATFORM/year is ridiculously expensive.
