CI and DevOps for Xamarin

October 27, 2016 @ 6:30 pm

Sick and tired of manually building applications? Feel like you are spending too much of your time pushing applications to your test users? Well, there is a better way. Join us as we discuss how you can use DevOps and CI to streamline your Xamarin application builds. We will review CI tools like Jenkins, Microsoft Team Foundation Build Service, and BitRise. We will, also, setup a Xamarin project from start-to-finish using BitRise to build our application, run unit tests and kick it out for deployment.

As usual, refreshments will be provided.

6:30 – 7:00: Food, drinks, and networking 
7:00 – 8:00: Presentation

Xamarin is a cross platform compilation framework which enables developers to write native applications for a variety of non-.NET platforms including iOS and Android using C# and .NET libraries.  

Xamarin consists of a mono framework for Android, iOS and OSX that includes C# wrappers for native API bindings, and a set of associated development tools. This allows developers to develop native iOS and Android apps in C# using the mono (.Net) framework. Xamarin currently supports all features of .Net 4.5.1, and all API’s in iOS 10.x and Android 7.x.

Xamarin is now included in Visual Studio 2015, including the Community edition, which supports cross platform development and common code for Android, iOS, OSX, Windows RT and Windows UWP from a single code base. It also comes with its own IDE for the Mac, Xamarin Studio, which supports cross platform development for Android, iOS and OSX apps from a single code base. It provides full support for PCLs, Shared Libraries, and Universal Apps.
