What’s the difference between Xamarin University Mobile Training for Visual Studio subscribers and the full Xamarin University Subscription?
The Xamarin University Mobile Training benefit for Visual Studio subscribers includes all of the same great features of the full Xamarin University subscription including unlimited access to live virtual trainings, up-to-date course materials and recordings, guest lectures, lightning lectures, and the opportunity to become a Xamarin Certified Developer. However, Visual Studio subscribers only have access to 1 office hour during their subscription, whereas, full subscription members are eligible for 1 office hour per consecutive month subscribed.
Can I become a Certified Xamarin Developer with the Xamarin University Mobile Training benefit included in my Visual Studio subscription?
Yes, all courses taken through instructor-led training or Self-Guided Learning are valid for course credit. Both the Xamarin Certified Mobile Professional and Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer exams are also included within the 3-month and 6-month subscriptions.
How do I get started?
To activate your Visual Studio Xamarin University benefit, please go to your Visual Studio "My Benefits" page and click "Activate" in the Xamarin University section under "Education". This will bring you to a page on university.xamarin.com where you can activate your benefit. Please make sure to log-in to Xamarin University with the same email address as your Visual Studio account.
What happens when my free subscription ends?
Your Xamarin University account and progress will remain intact but your subscription will transition to a Free Account, which has limited access to our materials. If you want to continue to keep all the benefits of a subscription, you can purchase a monthly subscription.
For more information and assistance, please see the detailed Xamarin University Support page.
