Xamarin is a fast growing start up founded in May 2011, currently 40 employees, with offices in Boston and San Francisco. We have thousands of paying customers and over one hundred and fifty thousand developers have used our tools.
Xamarin's mission is to make it fast, easy and fun to build great mobile apps. Xamarin provides the best platform for developers to create great mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, using their existing C# skills, tools, and code to build mobile apps for iOS and Android. All developers, including those new to the C# language, benefit from the ability to share code between platforms, while building fully native apps, without compromise.
For most people on the planet, their first and primary experience with software will be on a mobile device. This shift to mobile will create several big companies on the order of Adobe, Macromedia, and Rational. Xamarin aims to be one of them.
