Quick run through - using PCLs in Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS with mvvmcross

Following up from yesterday's annoucements, I've just recorded a quick "new project" run-through for PCLs with iOS and Android.

The source of what I built is on:

Note that I am using the latest nuget - 2.7.2 - downloaded from

The video is on:

If you've got questions, ideas, suggestions please do start a conversations somewhere - maybe on the MSDN or Xamarin forums, or maybe on Stackoverflow. Please do this in public somewhere - it's great to have open source conversations in public :)

Please do also write your own blog posts and make your own videos - it's fab seeing what others are doing :)
