Xamarin and Azure

Build great apps faster with the most advanced, scalable mobile cloud backend.

Meet Xamarin and Azure.

Build the apps they love in the language you love.

With Xamarin and Azure, every C# developer is a full-stack mobile developer. Leave behind platform-specific languages and share a single codebase across the front-end and back-end — all in C#, all from within Visual Studio or Visual Studio for Mac.

Build engaging, high-performing apps faster.

Azure takes the hassle out of integrating and scaling your apps, making it fast and easy to add and test new app features. Power your apps with push notifications, data sync, authentication, and hundreds more services with just a few lines of code. If you’re a seasoned mobile developer, Azure makes everything easier. If you're new to mobile, it gives you everything you need to be productive from day one.

Connect to your data, your way.

Write applications that deploy anywhere, using the services you have in place today. Access any data source in public clouds, private clouds, or on-premises with Azure's unique Hybrid Cloud Solution.

Grow from where you are.

Whether you’re a Fortune 500 enterprise or an indie developer trying to change the world, Azure lets you get started today and stays with you as you grow. Azure offers more public cloud data centers and more deployment options than any other service, with a pay-for-only-what-you-use pricing model that won’t punish you for success. Azure is here for you, wherever you go.
