“We used Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 to develop a Xamarin.Forms app that gives us 95 percent code reuse across all of the platforms that we were targeting—iOS, Android, and Windows phone. Visual Studio Team Services and Xamarin Test Cloud particularly allowed us to iterate quickly through several releases of the application because we were able to check as we went along that our tests were still passing, and the product was still robust enough to deploy.“

Emma Parkes, Senior Software Engineer, British Airways
