Microsoft to acquire Xamarin and empower more developers to build apps on any device - The Official Microsoft Blog[^]

As the role of mobile devices in people’s lives expands even further, mobile app developers have become a driving force for software innovation. At Microsoft, we are working to enable even greater developer opportunity and innovation by providing the best experiences to all developers, on any device, with powerful tools, an open platform and a global cloud.

As part of this commitment I am pleased to announce today that Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire Xamarin, a leading platform provider for mobile app development.


- Scott Guthrie
Executive vice president of the Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group
