Submission + - Miguel de Icaza's Quest to Help C# Developers Go iOS (xconomy.com)

waderoush writes: "Miguel de Icaza started the GNOME project in the 1990s to bring a Windows-like desktop environment to Linux, then co-founded Ximian, which eventually became part of Novell. Now he thinks it’s time to give programmers stuck building ‘soul-sucking’ Windows desktop software a way to join the mobile era. His new startup Xamarin, co-founded with his Ximian co-founder Nat Friedman, helps developers who are versed in C# and the .NET framework build apps for the iOS and Android mobile operating systems. De Icaza admits that he long lived in an ‘anti-Apple bubble’ and says he ‘dismissed’ the iPhone when it first came out in 2007. But now he calls Microsoft ‘the third horse in a two-horse race.’ The upside for Windows developers, says de Icaza: C# and .NET offer a responsive, error-resistant architecture for mobile apps, and using Xamarin they can write and debug iOS and Android apps in Visual Studio."
