Xamarin Alliance: Getting started with Xamarin
Gill Cleeren

Want to take part in the Xamarin Alliance but don't know how to get started? We have the perfect evening planned for you!

In this session, Gill Cleeren will take you through the platform and its options. We will explore what Xamarin is, what you can do with the different pillars in the Xamarin platform and how you can deploy an application. We'll also look at building a small Xamarin application together. Finally, we'll spend time to make sure that your machine is up and running so that when you walk away, you can get started building your own Xamarin apps for the Xamarin Alliance!
