Great support from the vendor. They assigned us a technical support personnel and helped us in a lot of integration
Spend time understanding Xamarin, including creating a quick POC, don't judge by just reading it
Work closer to developers in the community for adoption
We will focus on devops in the very beginning
Very attentive to our questions. Technical support is wonderful and helping us solving a lot of problems.

Workstation setup was straight forward. Learning curve is very short for experienced C# programmers. Coming over from another programming language is very fast. I especially appreciate having full control of the mobile app experience. I have not come across a functionality need that cannot be satisfied to meet the user expectations. Virtually endless capabilities abound through the thousands of .NET libraries available.
Make sure you have a good UI designer on the team. Mobility is all about the user experience and ease of use.
Quick learning curve.
No, non-programmer app dev option.
Can't think of one, the company has done extremely well and executed as well as can be hoped. The proof is their recent acquisition by Microsoft. My only concern is that the general mobile dev market doesn't get put-off by that, assuming that MS will somehow break the success streak they have built up so far.
Start with the Xamarin Forms product first for faster cross-platform UI development. But it wasn't fully completed when we began our development project.
Successfully met all business functional requirements due to the speed and capability to exploit all mobile device capabilities.
Excellent Account Managers and technical support. Xamarin Evolve is a must for organizations that are already using the platform.

Xamarin overall was an excellent vendor partner. We did have some minor issues with integration of iOS with Windows machines (our iOS developers preferred their Macs anyway and just used Xamarin Studio instead of Microsoft Visual Studio). We were an early adopter of Xamarin Test Cloud so we experienced numerous teething pains, but Xamarin did work diligently to address the problem. As a result, Test Cloud is now enterprise ready.
Do not be discouraged by the high cost of JetPack Consulting, they will greatly improve your adoption speed and get your team working fast.
Native C# complication with significant code share between iOS and Android.
Engaged Xamarin JetPack consulting early in the process.
Our best vendor by far in the organization.

Excellent features and easy to use and learn. Opens a whole new avenue of mobile development C3 and .NET developers without much overhead.

Easy to implement.
If you have .NET technology in-house, Xamarin is the way to go.
Ease of use and tons of learning opportunities.
