Croatian Linux Users’ Conference

Writing Android apps on Linux using Xamarin.Android and C#


Xamarin.Android is one of the Xamarin platform products, together with Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Mac, products that enable .net, so C# and F# developers to write software targeting Android, iOS and MacOSX with a common codebase and shared (reused) cross platform code. For management code reuse means slimmer resources - manpower and/or timelines - thus cost reduction. This workshop will go through 1st steps in Xamarin.Android development, introducing tools, IDE (Xamarin.Studio) and Android concepts applied through C# instead of java with emphasis on the differences between standard Android development and Xamarin.Android concepts.
