Microsoft acquired XAMARIN on Feb 24, 2016. Xamarin is an IDE for creating native android and iOS apps with C# libraries.

This is a very great news especially for the developers who were paying to use Xamarin and student developers which needed to create a student account for the same. Now Microsoft has announced that Xamarin will be available free of cost for the first time with Visual Studio 2105 Update 2. This is a great news especially for the developers.

have you used Xamarin?? shout out in the comments.
