Reasons why Xamarin is the best choice for your company
27 de septiembre del 2018
In Xipe we used Xamarin as one of our main tools because the exponential rise of mobile users is forever on the rise, and companies must prepare themselves for the future. Xamarin offers an all in one solution for mobile developers, with this tool you can create, monitor and test native mobile apps across all platforms. This app development platform provides you with the necessary tools to create well-executed apps and a mobile-friendly website, with a quick turn-around time.
Here are 3 reasons why Xamarin is the best choice for your company:
Shared code: Xamarin uses C# with .NET framework to create apps for iOS, Android and Windows devices. Therefore, you can reuse up to 96% of the source code which allows for faster development. Due to this shared code base, you can save a lot of time and effort. You don´t have to change environments to develop and everything is integrated meaning a faster app development environment.
Cost-effective: You don´t have to invest in development infrastructures for each platform, as you can hire one team of Xamarin developers who will create a single code for you to deploy across various platforms for a flawless user experience.
Testing: The Xamarin framework supports app testing which means mobile developers can discover and track the bugs that may appear. This reduces troubleshooting time and makes developers lives easier.
Xamarin enable developers to build Android, iOS, and Windows app using C#. Therefore, the base for any Xamarin developer would be his proficiency in C# language. You can develop a set of questions that can help you to examine their know-how (HTML based pages, XAML, UI controls, state management, data binding, web services) and experience over C#. Also, check out for .NET specific techniques like C# classes, methods, properties, lambda expressions, Async/Await etc.
Xamarin facilitates developing mobile apps using Visual Studio, which is available for Mac and Windows. Familiarity with Visual Studio and requisites to run it for app development must be clear for seamless development. Development, debugging, and deployment using Visual Studio should be known.
To stay responsive to volatile technology, developers should keep learning to help themselves. We ask to the developers about their guiding resources when stuck while coding. This may include references like Q&A websites like StackOverflow, YouTube channels, books etc. In addition to this, you can have a look at the practical execution of developer’s knowledge through their previous work.
