 The creation of XAM Consulting

 

The foundation of XAM Consulting started over two decades ago. Michael had a dream to run his own technology company that could help other companies be successful. As with all great companies,  it’s not been an overnight success but a slow burn to where we are now.

 

The bread and butter of XAM Consulting began in 2011 when Michael was first tasked with building an enterprise level mobile application. As with many companies around that time Michael first went down the path of PhoneGap (HTML5/Javascript), as others also discovered this path was less than ideal the app was slow and clunky. The failure of HTML5 on mobile was known throughout the industry, most notably with Mark Zuckerberg claiming Facebook’s biggest mistake on mobile was using HTML5. Three months later and Michael’s PhoneGap app went in the bin. Searching around for new solutions Michael came onto a company called Xamarin. This company claimed that you could use C# to build native mobile applications for iOS and Android.

At first Michael didn’t believe this (it’s vaporware!). Eventually he tested out this technology and 2 days later he was on his way to building a native application. The app was fast, smooth and used native UI elements. Since then Michael and his team knew that Xamarin was a solid technology, so they continually invested in mastering Xamarin, even though it was still a startup. One of the pinnacle moments in this history is when Microsoft acquired Xamarin. It was outstanding to see that a solid technology was ‘acknowledged’ in such a huge way! XAM Consulting still keeps its foundation as one of the leading Xamarin Consulting companies around the world.

Over the years XAM also evolved., We’ve grown our team, improved our QA, delivered apps that scale to million of users and provided consultancy and training for big enterprises across Australia, USA and the UK.  We also expanded our services into UXD, Visual Design and Web Development.
