Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a mobile app with Xamarin: Visual Studio 2017, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 07 Understanding Project Types.
- [Narrator] Xamarin is Microsoft's platform…for building mobile applications…and you write your code in C#…or other .net languages.…Now, this area of Microsoft technology…is growing and changing rapidly.…So, there's a lot of differences…in Visual Studio 2017 than what you see in 2015.…Let's look at a few of those differences.…First thing you want to do is go to…the cross platform section in your favorite language,…then choose one of these three items.…The first one's for building an app in Xamarin.…Second one is for building a class library,…it's a portable class library that supports a Xamarin app.…
And the third choice is UI test app.…I'll choose this top item, pick whatever names you want,…and put it in a location that makes sense…for your computer and then click OK.…Then on this screen, this is something new in 2017,…we have a choice of two different templates.…A blank app or master detail template.…And I can choose whether to build my UI…using Xamarin forms or whether I want to use native code.…And then, I can also choose where my shared code goes…
