Get Started with Xamarin Forms

Mobile applications is where it's at, and if you want to be there you have to look your options for the cross platform story. If you're a web developer you probably want to look at Cordova or mobile HTML, but if you're a C# developer and want to build native apps with XAML then Xamarin is your friend. In the release of Xamarin Forms you can design and deliver cross platform solutions with Xamarin from the comfort of Visual Studio. In this session I'll show how you can get started with the tools, setting up your environment and building a real app that runs across devices. Learn what you need to know to get started working with Xamarin Forms.
