Xamarin Studio Launcher

UPDATE: Sep 19, 2014: Yet another new Launcher! This time I’m calling it v3, and it can now handle .sln files (opening them in a new instance of Xamarin Studio). Check out the new blog post for more info!

UPDATE: Sep 8, 2014: The original launcher works well, but after Xamarin 3.0, it didn’t look so up to date. There were a couple people that took it upon themselves to update it, and thanks for that! Now, I’ve released my own updated copy, so please download and try again!

Xamarin Studio Launcher

I’ve recently converted to a Mac. As a long time Windows user, one thing I was very accustomed to was keeping multiple visual studio, or more recently, Xamarin Studio instances open at any given time. Switching to a Mac I found this isn’t so easy, so I decided to make a nice little Launcher application to open new Xamarin Studio instances at will!

So, without further ado, please download the Xamarin Studio Launcher!

MobiDevDay Detroit 2013

Had a great turnout and lots of solid questions at my talk on Xamarin and C# at Detroit MobiDevDay 2013. I’ve got my slides posted for anyone who cares to have a look!

Thanks to @MobiDevDay for having me, and to all those who came out!

MobiDevDay Detorit – Native Cross Platform Mobile with Xamarin and C

Create iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows Phone apps in C#. Reuse code, and leverage existing .NET libraries and frameworks, while applying the same C# skillset everywhere to create truly native apps across mobile platforms. This session looks at why you’ll love using Xamarin’s popular mobile development tools to create native applications to increase productivity, while creating a first class native user experience across the most popular mobile platforms. This isn’t your grandmother’s hybrid web app, this is real native, platform API’s, and raw power.
