Note: Evolve tickets are selling fast, so register now.

Over the past year Xamarin and Microsoft have worked closely to ensure the success of the .NET developer community.  As a Visual Studio 2012 sim-ship partner, Xamarin developers were able to build apps in the latest version of Microsoft’s much beloved IDE.  Our partnership with Azure Mobile Services brought Microsoft’s cloud capabilities to Xamarin-powered iOS and Android apps.  With Microsoft’s launch of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 last fall, Xamarin.Mobile updates made it possible to share code with apps targeting Microsoft’s latest devices.

Together Xamarin and Microsoft bring C# to 2.2 billion devices, and together we will make Xamarin Evolve 2013 an event you won’t forget.
