Built by Wade Wegner of Microsoft Azure, this SDK is made to help .NET developers construct applications in C# that can interact with the Uber API. This makes it easier to build Uber-equipped applications on platforms like .NET 4.5, Windows Phone 8, Windows 8/8.1, and iOS/Android using Xamarin and Mono.NET. The project, repository, and code examples are well documented and are accessible on GitHub. Calls to the Uber API can be made to request information on available car types, driver location expressed in geo-coordinates, time estimates, estimated prices (including currency conversion when applicable), as well as user account history and activity.
