How to develop Microsoft .NET C# apps for Linux, Google Android, Apple iOS iPad iPhone and Mac OS X with Mono Develop #apple #android

So I went to another Toronto .NET User group. Fellow Meetup member  Shane C did a nice presentation on how to develop .NET applications on a Mac. Yes a Mac. With the movement of Mono for Linux or Unix, the newly spun off division  Xamarin from Novell. The possibility to develop a .NET backend application with a unique front end for your target device like Apple iOS or Google Android. It is kind of cool. All this is done through their two products MonDevelop IDE and Monotouch DLL. You can just target you backend. Let’s say you want to develop in something for Mac or iOS for iPad or iPhone, you can visually use the components for your add. All these can be drag and dropped into your panel with XCode generating the Objective C. It works in conjunction with Mono Develop which can generate your .NET code into Objective C on the fly. Pretty cool. Also this code can also be submitted to the Itunes store which Apple needs to approve. Again, very cool and a unique way of rapid development for your backend service. I think this is the best workflow yet I have seen to develop a mobile or Mac app. The only caveat for developing on Mac is you need a Mac, Apple developers license, ($99) and the Mono Touch DLL which is $299. It is a nice option but you need to be serious if you want to go down this path.

Also, you can target the same app using the same concept for Android and Linux/Unix as well. These are free options other developing for Apple technologies. As said, it is a good option if you want rapid development for mobile.

See what I plan to do with this for mobile apps

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
