This was really groundbreaking news at //Build 2016. My colleague Roy Cornelissen, who is a Xamarin (or now Microsoft) MVP has been there from the early start and wrote a great post on this! Enjoy !
This week at Microsoft’s //build/ 2016 conference in San Francisco, Scott Guthrie shared more details about the Xamarin acquisition and what this means for developers on the Microsoft stack. The keynote is worth checking out, also for the great Azure content. More interesting details about what Xamarin has in the works can be found in Miguel de Icaza’s session. Or you can watch the distilled announcement here:
In short, Microsoft has made the Xamarin tools available to everyone. If you have a Visual Studio Professional or Enterprise edition, Xamarin is included at no extra cost. Moreover, it’s also available as a completely free Community Edition, under the same Microsoft license terms (small teams, OSS developers and students). Wow!
