Native mobile cross-platform with Xamarin.Forms and C# (Sponsors Track)

Peter Major

Peter has been developing software since 1996, using technologies such as VB, Delphi, C#, Azure, AngularJS and, most recently, Xamarin.

He believes in challenging the use of entrenched tools as new tools arrive that promise increased productivity and value.

Peter currently builds cool stuff for JUST EAT with AWS and Xamarin.

Brief Overview

Use Xamarin and Xamarin Forms to build native, cross-platform mobile applications. That's right, I said native. And cross-platform!

Description

Using Xamarin on a project can reduce time to market by writing shared code in C# once rather than Java and Objective-C for Android and iOS.
 
Until recently, when developing an application with Xamarin you still used native UI tools for each mobile OS on top of your shared C# code. For some types of applications, shared code is minimal and the UIs are the biggest part of the application.
 
Since the release of Xamarin Forms, shared UI code across platforms is now possible.

In this session we'll dive into how the technology works, and we'll review the types of applications and teams that might be good candidates for a Xamarin Forms project.

DDDSW 6 Sponsorship

It is now only 8 weeks before we plan to run the DDDSW 6 event in Bristol but to date we have not been able to attract enough sponsorship to cover our essential costs. This currently leaves us with a funding shortfall.

We are therefore appealing to the DDDSW community for help to try to gain funding.

If you work for or know of a company that would like to sponsor this event then please put them in touch with us.

The team have looked at the various options available if we fail to get enough sponsorship and would like to highlight this to the community for discussion:

  • Run the event on a minimal budget (which we don't have yet). Delegates would be required to bring their own food and drink.
  • Charge delegates to attend, this would be a small cost of around £10 to £15. Lunch / snacks /drinks would be included.
  • Cancel the event

We are not keen to adopt any of these options, so we would appeal for anybody in the community who knows of a suitable sponsor to get in touch.
