Calling all .NET developers! This workshop will introduce you to writing native applications geared for the Android Platform based on .NET/C#/Mono. We’ll examine the overall architecture of MonoDroid, discuss how it integrates with Visual Studio, debug with MonoDroid, and look at a couple of example apps written with MonoDroid.
This session is for the .NET developer that wants to move to Android. While the session will be introductory for the Android platform, it will be advanced for those on the .NET Platform.
Native Android development is predominantly with the Java Language based on the Dalvik Java virtual machine using the Eclipse IDE. But if you or your company have already made a significant investment in .NET, the time to learn Java and Android is significant. Fortunately, there’s another way! You’ll be able to take your existing knowledge of .NET/C# and Visual Studio and immediately apply this to writing apps for Android using the Novell MonoDroid plugin.
