[Xamarin] Building an Estimote Scavenger Hunt on iOS, Android, and Windows in C# with Xamarin

Xamarin Evolve 2014 attendees had an action packed five days, with activities ranging from mini-hacks in the Darwin Lounge and a plethora of amazing sessions, to seeing Whale Sharks at the Georgia Aquarium. At the center of Xamarin Evolve lived a brand new interactive scavenger hunt, the Xamarin Evolve Quest. Once the Xamarin Evolve Quest app was installed on their smart phones, questers were on their way to winning an exclusive Xamarin Evolve 2014 monkey. monkey2014

Hidden around Xamarin Evolve 2014 were iBeacons from Estimote that questers needed to find using clues from the Xamarin Evolve Quest app. Finishing the quests involved answering several Xamarin trivia questions and completing tasks, such as trying out Google Cardboard.

Below you’ll find a link to a post on Estimote blog, where James Montemagno from Xamarin detailed the creation of the app, along with its open-source code.
