Xamarin is a software product for application development. The company Xamarin was taken over by Microsoft after a successful start-up period. The software for applications within Xamarin does not only focus on building for Windows as Microsoft itself often does. The apps can be developed for Android, iOS, macOS and Windows.
Apps have long been an indispensable part of today's society. Apps are developed for different purposes. There are apps for information provision, practical apps for example for internet banking and there are games apps for education and relaxation.
Because every operating system is different, Xamarin's Software Development Kit, Xamarin Studio, is ideal for developing apps for multiple app stores. Visual Studio from Microsoft can also be used. If you have a background in IT or computer science, the various SDKs are easy to use and the development of a simple app can be built quickly. For a more complex app with multiple functionalities, specialist knowledge is often required.
An app for all operating systems is nowadays a must for a company. However, each system has its own coding language and system requirements, which means that an app must be developed for the various systems. Xamarin's software ensures smooth development in a system with output for all major operating systems.
An app can be simple or very complex. All kinds of tools are available for the development of a small app, but a complex app requires knowledge and expertise. Xamarin is software that supports development. An IT professional offers a solution for experience in development. A certified IT professional advises and programs a sketch according to reality.
