The mobile space continues to heat up, but every platform has its own language and set of tools you must use if you want to deliver a fully native experience to your users. Did you know that you can actually use C# and the .NET Framework to build native applications for iOS, Android and Windows Phone? Using C# and .NET across the board also means that you have the opportunity to share large amounts of code between platforms.

This webcast will introduce you to:

  • Developing cross-platform mobile applications using C#
  • Making use of MonoTouch and Mono for Android for iOS and Android
  • And exploring how they relate to the native platform libraries
