Developing apps for all mobile devices

A bit of old news to start out with, but one which is quite symptomatic of the evolution of technology is the collaboration of Xamarin with Microsoft. This took place in November 2013. In two years of existence prior to that, Xamarin had 440,000 developers working on its standard platform for enterprise mobile development. Developers could use Xamarin and develop native apps for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows, working with a single code base. According to Xamarin, 75 percent of the source code would be the same.

With the technical collaboration, Xamarin was integrated more fully into the Microsoft system of tools and services for developers.

Microsoft acquired Xamarin in 2016.
