Microsoft and Xamarin Partner Globally

This is a major endorsement of Xamarin by Microsoft and we are thrilled to be working together with the creators of C#. As part of the partnership we co-announced 3 big wins for our joint developer community. Learn more.

Portable Class Library Support
 
 
PCL Support
 
We’re proud to announce that Portable Class Library (PCL) projects are fully supported for iOS and Android to make it even easier to share code. You can now keep common code in a single project, and reference it from any iOS, Android, Windows Phone or Windows Store project—all within a single solution. For more information, check out this Introduction to Portable Class Libraries.

 

Visual Studio 2013 Support
 
 
We're also proud to announce same-day support for Microsoft’s new Visual Studio 2013 release. The release includes improved integration between Visual Studio and Xamarin.iOS Mac Build Hosts, as well as a number of bug fixes and API enhancements. Watch and listen to our Xamarin and Visual Studio 2013 webinar.

Xamarin University features live training by expert Xamarin developers, conducted in small online groups, and includes lectures and lab exercises.

Develop for Google Glass with Xamarin.Android
 
 
Google has released a sneak peek of the long awaited Glass Developer Kit (GDK) and now Xamarin.Android developers that have access to the GDK can build Google Glass apps. The new APIs and a sample app are available via the Xamarin Component Store. Tell us about your cool Google Glass apps and we’ll feature the best apps in upcoming blog posts.

Windows Azure Portal Welcomes Xamarin
 
 
Windows AzureXamarin-specific tutorials and samples are now featured in the windowsazure.com portal. This means instant access to a pre-configured Xamarin sample app and Xamarin-specific C# instructions for implementing Azure features such as data storage and validation, authentication services and push notifications. Simply sign up at AzureMobile.com, and then download the Azure Mobile Services component from within Visual Studio or Xamarin Studio to get started. Also, view Craig Dunn’s webinar on integrating Azure Mobile Services into your apps.

 

Xamarin Studio 4.2 Enhancements
 
 
Our most recent release introduced several significant improvements. Changes to the way Xamarin.iOS binds Objective-C protocols make it easier to adopt a protocol and optional methods. Support for Asset Catalogs makes it easy to manage the variety of images required in an iOS project for icons and launch screens at different resolutions. Portable Class Library (PCL) support is now part of Xamarin Studio, and there are enhancements to version control for Git and Subversion, the Android designer, debugging, source analysis and more. Learn more.
