I’ve been curious on xamarin for a little while, for some reason I was not sure about that technology, I think my main reason to no go with the Xamarin was because of the responsive design apps. I tend to think that is most likely to ha a chance to program a responsive design app than a native app.
As I said I just took some action on getting the installer from the main site which is own by microsoft, this is the download page in case you are interested. https://www.xamarin.com/download
I will share some of my projects in later post, just wanted to post a note for my records on when I started programming in Xamarin
