Training on Xamarin Visual Studio 2013 Plugin, .NET 4.5 async/await Support, HttpClient, and other New Features

I have a new training class out on Xamarin.  This session will cover the new features that Xamarin has provided in their mid-2013 update.  These new features include support for iOS 7 (iPhone and iPad), but don't require iOS7.  I hope you enjoy this class.  My favorite features here are the Visual Studio 2013 support for iOS, which I use every day, the .NET 4.5 async/await support, and the HttpClient.

Course Description: With the new features from Xamarin, .NET developers have many things that they can work with. Xamarin has provided support for Visual Studio developers to write iPhone and iPad applications. Support for the asynchronous APIs in .NET 4.5, the .NET 4.5 HTTP client, improved gestures for an improved API to work with and other features as well.
