Newbie seeking advice for cross platform development RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone.  I'm (attempting) to start a teaching website for medical people.  This will essentially consist of teaching video and an interactive test engine that adjusts testing to a user's level of learning.   I was thinking along the lines of asp.net and C#.  To get in the cross platform mobile world, what is the best solution?  Will I be looking at xmarin?

  • if you are familiar with C#, I would go with Xamarin. That's is probably the best solution if you don't  want to go native. Xamarin is pretty pricy, though.

  • If this is a web site than you are running in a browser and it's cross platform by definition.

    You would only need xamarin if you intended writing native applications to run on the device ( apps).

    I recommend asp.net mvc and the javascript framework bootstrap to make it easier to cope with the different formats you seem to expect.

    Hope that helps
