Microsoft Acquires Xamarin


Microsoft announced the acquisition of Xamarin. Xamarin is a platform that allows mobile developers to build cross platform native applications using Xaml and C#. Maximizing the re-usage of source code saves companies a lot of time and money by maintaining one source and use one skillset to program for all platforms. Xamarin integrates with Visual Studio on Windows, and on Mac developers can use Xamarin Studio.

The acquisition also includes the Xamarin Test Cloud, Xamarin University and Xamarin Insights

Microsoft made Xamarin development platform available for free. It still costs money to use the Xamarin Test Cloud and Xamarin University.
