Good news, I have passed all of the Xamarin certification tests, and am now a Xamarin Certified mobile developer.
Hopefully, this will enable me to diversify my skills, as I have become very tightly focussed on high-performance WPF desktop front-office trading apps over the last few years.
I did try a move into Windows RT and Phone platforms, but I’m fairly sure that would have been an unfortunate mistake, considering how difficult Microsoft are finding the task of becoming relevant in the mobile space. With Xamarin, I can build iOS, Android and Windows Phone with very high levels of code-reuse.
I’m going to start adding Xamarin articles to my blog, so I hope you find the change in content still relevant
