    Taking .NET Everywhere

    By James Montemagno
    In this mobile first, cloud first world, it's essential to have a high-performing, powerful framework available on every platform you're targeting. That framework is .NET and has expanded to every device imaginable. Whether it is server, web, mobile, wearables, or IoT, .NET is there and fully cross-platform. Developers can now leverage Xamarin to craft native Mobile and Desktop applications from a single shared code base, while building back-ends and web sites in .NET Core and ASP.NET Core that can run on any operating system to power them. Join James Montemagno in a keynote session focused on how you can leverage your existing .NET and C# skills to build apps for any platform. He'll take you through everything you need to get started building apps and a few revolutionary tools to help learn the amazing APIs packed into each platform.

We’ve made it more intuitive to write code, faster to build and deploy your apps, and easier to iterate on your UIs with a wide variety of tools and features. Join Maddy Leger, Xamarin Program Manager, to learn about some of the latest features coming to Xamarin like XAML Hot Reload for Xamarin.Forms, Hot Restart for iOS development on Windows, custom drawn UI, and more!
