Developers can revisit last summer's Xamarin Developer Summit with a series of instructional videos for the mobile development framework.

Mobile coders can avail themselves of more than 25 session videos from the event, which are available as a YouTube playlist or on Microsoft's Channel 9 video site, with more said to be coming over the next few weeks.

Top sessions teased by the dev team include:
