Keith is a VP with Wintellect, an Atlanta-based “boutique” consulting firm. But don’t let the title fool you - he is also very much a hands-on software engineer and architect, with hundreds of completed projects over the past two decades. He has been involved with regional .NET developer communities since the initial launch of .NET over a decade ago, having presented on numerous topics over the years and has also helped organize and manage local user groups and code camps. He is also a Microsoft MVP and at various points in his career has been an expert developer/architect in many technologies and platforms. Lately Keith's primary technical focus has been on cross-platform mobile application development with Xamarin. He has a number of apps published, most of which are deployed to all three of the major App Stores (Apple, Google, and Microsoft).
With Xamarin it is very quick and easy to get your mobile app ideas built and into the hands of users. In this session you will be introduced to the platform and shown the steps to develop a basic application that targets iOS, Android and Windows devices.
In the beginner-oriented session we were able to get a simple Xamarin app up and running on several device platforms. In this session we will add some additional polish to help differentiate our app, and we will cover the additional steps needed to get our app into the App Stores.
