Walk through the ins and outs of application development using Xamarin and data capture integration with Socket Mobile Software Engineer, Matt Robbins. Xamarin, developed by Microsoft, is an open-source developer toolkit used for creating native, cross-platform, desktop, and web applications. Since its official launch in 2016, developers have continued to use the Xamarin framework to build cross-platform Android and iOS apps using .NET and C#.

Socket Mobile includes support for Xamarin in their CaptureSDK developer tool kit. Integrated into thousands of applications, CaptureSDK provides easy-to-use software tools for optimal data capture performance and efficiency. Xamarin is just one of the many developer tools that allow Socket's CaptureSDK to deliver a new level of control and adaptability for application developers.

Matt will dive into an interactive walkthrough demonstrating app creation using Xamarin, CaptureSDK, and data capture integration. The webinar will also feature LIVE Q&A throughout to answer questions directly from participants. We look forward to having you join us on June 29th!
