Mobile development is one of the fastest growing segments in IT today. The demand for mobile applications will most likely continue to grow at an exponential pace for the foreseeable future. But mobile users, like their web and desktop counterparts, demand just as much quality as quantity, maybe more. Cross platform solutions like Xamarin reduce both time to market and the amount of code needed to target multiple platforms. To support this rapid development pace, while also ensuring high quality, more and more mobile teams are turning to automated build, testing, and deployment strategies. While there are many different solutions available, this course attempts to illustrate an interesting and compelling alternative for the Xamarin shop looking to leverage in-house .NET skills using modern tools like F#/FAKE and TeamCity, as well as 3rd party cloud services such as HipChat and PagerDuty.
