Building Android Apps in .NET with Mono for Android
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 6:30 PM, Washington, DC
View Building Android Apps in .NET with Mono for Android on Bing Maps This presentation will demonstrate building an Android mobile application that consumes existing services using Xamarin's Mono for Android. Mono for Android leverages Mono - an open-source implementation of the .NET framework. This allows .NET developers to program for the AndroidOS using C# in Visual Studio (or the MonoDevelop IDE if you prefer). During this presentation we will build out the same functionality as done in the companion session 'Building Android Apps in Java and Eclipse'.

When looking for a Cloud platform to host your Java applications there are a lot of providers to choose from. Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform is one of these platforms, which offers a rich set of services that can be used with any language or framework, thus also with Java. In this session I want to show the efforts made by Microsoft, in cooperation with third-party vendors, to make deploying Java Applications as easy as possible for Java- (non-.NET) developers. Additionally, I will briefly touch on the recently announced IaaS offering, which makes deploying Java applications onto Linux in Windows Azure possible.
