Tip: Take the Xamarin Challenge

Paul Thurrott started doing a promotion on his site in tandem with Xamarin called the "Xamarin Challenge." The idea is that they want people to be confronted by their toolset now that they have Visual Studio 2017 and learn how to create mobile apps that run across platforms. You can create apps that will run on Windows 10, Android, and iOS, all in the same place in Visual Studio.

They'll be giving away two Microsoft Surface Studios, and all you need to do is complete the challenge to be entered to win. This is a challenge, but you don't have to invent software code, just follow the steps and start a project. Just head to to register. Of course, you will need Visual Studio 2017, but the community version is free to use.
