Here’s a list to help you get started with cross-platform mobile app development using Xamarin Forms.
- Visual Studio 2015
- Android SDK
- Windows 10 OS
- While you can work with Windows 8 as well, you will need Windows 10 operating system if you are going to develop for Windows 10 Universal App.
- Mac with Xcode and Xamarin installed
- Again this is not a mandatory to get started with Xamarin but without a Mac you will not be able to develop applications for iPhone.
If you have all the items on this list installed/setup then you are ready to get started with Xamarin Forms Development!
