We will be presenting on mobile application development using C# and Visual Studio at the Chicago .Net Developers Downtown Users’ Group on July 10th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Echo Global Logistics (map). We will be discussing how this madness is possible, providing some feedback on mobile development, reviewing some application code and answering your questions. The fine folks over at Xamarin will be providing some sweet giveaways, so you will not want to miss it.

More information and registration at the Chicago .Net Developers Downtown Meetup site.

If you have any questions on the presentation or if you want to grab a drink afterwards, drop us a line or on twitter @TheEightBot.

 

One Lang to Rule Them All: Building iOS, Android & Windows 8 Apps using C# and Visual Studio

Ever wanted to build native apps for iOS or Android, but didn’t want to learn Objective-C or JAVA? Have you looked into other frameworks like PhoneGap and Sencha Touch, but wanted a fully native environment? Xamarin’s tools for iOS and Android open up a whole new world for .Net Developers to develop native applications in C# and Visual Studio. Join us as we cover an overview of mobile development using Xamarin’s tools, discuss mobile development strategies including code sharing, synchronization and data access, and review a cross-platform application that runs on iOS, Android and Windows 8.
