Xamarin is Free! Now What?

With it's recent acquisition by Microsoft, Xamarin is now free to all Visual Studio users. With the barrier to entry drastically reduced, many more developers are considering Xamarin as a potential mobile development platform. If you're among them, what's the next step? How do you test the waters and determine if Xamarin is the right solution for you? In this session, we'll explore the Xamarin ecosystem and then do a deeper dive into how you build a cross-platform solution with Xamarin, starting with a blank solution and then progressing to a finished app. Along the way we'll discuss the pros and cons of our approach, and answer any questions that come up.
