Checklist For Xamarin Forms Development

Here’s a list to help you get started with cross-platform mobile app development using Xamarin Forms.

  1. Xamarin
  2. Visual Studio 2015
  3. Android SDK
  4. Windows 10 OS
    1. 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.
  5. Mac with Xcode and Xamarin installed
    1. 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!
