Xamarin raises $12m VC funding

Excellent news from Nat, Miguel, Joseph and co

What's more, everything we've accomplished so far was done without raising any outside investment. We earned every dollar we spent. We're very proud of that, and we hope that it's had a permanent effect on our culture.

We could have kept going indefinitely, but a few months ago we decided to raise money. Because as great as the last year has been, the opportunity for Xamarin is much bigger. Bringing C# to iOS and Android is a wonderful first step, but our ambition is to solve all of the hard problems you encounter when creating mobile apps.

TechCrunch also has some coverage, as does The Next Web, but so far the best is from VentureBeat.
