If you’ve been doing mobile development, you probably know all about the problem of having to target multiple platforms, along with the languages each one requires. Having to rewrite and support essentially the same code on different platforms flat out sucks, and isn’t really a great way to spend your time. Thanks to the fine folks working on Mono and its satellite projects, it’s possible to leverage the power of the .NET framework across many platforms. In this article I’ll focus on sharing the same code across Android and Windows Phone 7, but you’ll easily see how it could be extended to Silverlight, ASP.NET or iOS without much effort at all.
