Xamarin makes your work easier
Xamarin is a cross-platform app development framework,
which allows you to write native mobile apps in C# and run
them on iOS and Android devices.
One of its biggest features is the ability to share large amounts
of code across these two platforms, whilst still being able to
access the native SDK- allowing it to take full advantage of
certain platform-specific features.
It’s all about re-using as much code as
possible
Xamarin in Action tackles this issue head on.
Re-using code saves you time, effort, and money, as well as
allowing you to publish apps to multiple app stores
simultaneously.
That’s what cross-platform app development is all about!
Xamarin lets you build truly native apps
Xamarin does this by wrapping native APIs in C# code, and
providing a compiler for each platform which produces native
code.
This means that your app is truly native, and can access every
device and OS feature that the native API can – they’re just as
fast as a native app too.
Xamarin in Action will teach you to use your C# skillset to take
advantage of this powerful framework.
Xamarin is about to take off
It was recently purchased by Microsoft, and is set to become a
very important part of their “any developer, any platform”
mantra.
This means that Xamarin benefits from Microsoft’s vast
developer community, support, and vast wealth of technical
knowledge and experience.
Xamarin in Action will have you writing
apps with Xamarin in no time!
Whether you’re an indie developer or a
part of a big team, Xamarin can help
solve your cross-platform deployment
problems.
App users are a fickle bunch, so the
ability to update/patch your app, as
well as deploy it, on multiple app
stores simultaneously is key
for the success of your
great idea.
Xamarin in Action brings you knowledge
from a Xamarin MVP
You will jump into using Xamarin by making an app, right
away.
You will learn the tools and abilities of this amazing platform
through informative diagrams, illuminative examples, and
crystal-clear explanations.
So you can make your app once, and deploy it cross-platform
for maximum reach and success!
