Visual Studio App Center (formerly Mobile Center) is now GA and is a very capable CI/CD platform to take your apps to the next level. App Center combines some of the powers of VSTS, HockeyApp, Test Cloud and Azure and brings it into a single, easy to use interface. App Center now supports iOS, Android, UWP and macOS (preview) with more to come. You can develop apps not only in C#/Xamarin but also Java, Objective-C/Swift, Cordova and React Native.
We will learn how to leverage the features of App Center to automate the build and distribution of apps to testers and the App Store/Google Play. We will also see how easy it is to plug in the SDK to collect analytics and crash reports in nearly realtime. Lastly, we will look at App Center's newest feature, Push Notifications, to improve engagement with your users.
Pizza will be served at 6:00pm and the presentation will start at 6:30pm.
Also, we'd love for you to bring along your ideas for future meetups. If you can't be there in person, please send us a message or comment here so we can get your input.
