Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a mobile app with Xamarin, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 07 Understanding Project Types.
- I'm here to look at how to create…a Xamarin app solution in Visual Studio 2015.…It's simple to make the solution.…Navigate to the File menu and choose New, Project.…Since the code in Xamarin is written in C#,…you'll want to look in the Visual C# node…and then look in the Mobile Apps section.…Of course if you'd rather,…you can use the Search Installed Templates…to find the Xamarin pieces.…When you get to the Mobile Apps folder,…you'll see that there are three Xamarin items in here.…There's a Blank App Portable, a Blank App Shared,…and a Class Library Portable.…
I'll be working with this first item here.…The portable class libraries…is a relatively new concept in the Microsoft world.…The idea is that you create a portable class library…and you put your shared code in there…that goes across multiple platforms.…Next of course you name your application,…you choose a location, and you click the OK button.…Since I've already created the project,…I will click Cancel.…Now let's look at Solution Explorer.…You see there are four projects here.…
