Code Project Virtual Tech Summit Session: This session will introduce writing native applications geared for the Android Platform based on .NET/C#/Mono. We’ll examine the overall architecture of MonoDroid, discuss how it integrates with VS, debug with MonoDroid, and look at sample MonoDroid apps

Code Project Virtual Tech Summit Session

If you missed the premiere of one of our virtual tech summits you'll still be able to view these sessions. This video originally premiered in our Cloud Development Summit March 9, 2011.


Android development is predominantly with the Java Language based on the Java VM "Dalvik" using the Eclipse IDE. If a developer or company has already made a significant investment in .NET, the time to learn Java and the Android Mobile Platform is significant. An attendee of this session will be able to take their existing knowledge of .NET/C# and Visual studio and immediately apply this to writing apps for the Android Mobile Platform. The significance of this should not be understated. Learning a new language, no matter how similar to .NET/C#, results in a significant learning curve as well as a significant time investment. Add in the time required to learn Eclipse, and there is even more time required. With this session, you will learn how to develop Android Applications using Visual Studio and the Novell MonoDroid plugin.
