Name a new technology that Min isn't interested in. Min has developed on all mobile platforms from latest Windows 8 to Windows Mobile 6.5. Of course that also means that he has had countless smartphones and tablets. Min is often honing his skills by aggressively competing in hackathons dating back to his days at Dominican University. Being technologically agnostic, he does not stop tinkering with mobile platforms like Android, he creates his own personal microcontrollers for robotics projects. When he's not coding, he's building robots. When he's not adding more robots to his robot army, you will see him speaking at conferences such as That Conference and CodeMash. Monday through Friday, you'll find him at a leading, privately-held payroll and HR software solutions company, cranking out .Net code and writing apps in ASP.Net, KendoUI, Knockout.js, Node.js, and other web solutions.

Portable class libraries are powerful and can help speed up your mobile development. You can use these on Windows Phone, Windows 8, Xamarin Android, and Xamarin iOS applications. We will go over how to create them, and best ways to use them. We will also show demonstrations using Xamarin Studio along with Visual Studio. Write code once, kind of deploy everywhere?
