Recently we came across the much awaiting news that Visual Studio was just launched for public. Took a long time coming.
Just to get started we created a sample project and sure it worked fine and fast.
Rich options are given while creating a project, right from android, iOS to Mac based applications (though you are given a 60 day xamarin trial)
We tried porting our applications to this but unfortunately our database MSSQL (Microsoft, are you hearing us!) forced us to stop.
Also the third party API’s that we use need to configured.
This is for sure a huge market for Microsoft, but as we have seen with most of their products of late, quality products are being developed.
This is a thumbs up from our end but its a long long way to go and we would be testing the platform aggressively in the coming weeks/months.
