Welcome to the Xamarin forums! This is the place for you to introduce yourself to the forum community. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? What kind of applications do you develop? What's your favorite mobile device?
I'm Ryan Paul, Xamarin's new developer evangelist. I was previously an Internet journalist, covering open source software, Web standards, and software development topics at Ars Technica. I'm making a few simple applications right now, including a reddit images app and a custom Parse.ly client. I alternate between an iPhone and a Galaxy Nexus.
I'm bryan costanich. i head up our docs and edu team. i like avocados.
you can praise and blame me for our docs.
I'm Martin Bowling, I love craft beer & writing Xamarin Moblie apps. I've even managed two combine those two loves - I occasionally blog at http://martinbowling.com I tweet a lot more at http://twitter.com/martinbowling
I'm Jonathan Dick... I am a DBA/Developer by day, and a Mobile Developer by night. I've been using Xamarin tools since the Novell days! I'm from the great white north, but south of Toronto (basically right across the river from Detroit).
I recently helped coauthor the Wrox book "Professional Android Programming with Mono for Android and .NET/C#"
Looks like I should make it to Monkeyspace this year, where I hope to finally meet a bunch of people from the community that I've had the pleasure of getting to know mostly over IRC.
Right now I'm making a set of apps for a company in Nashville: Aegis Shield Moble
The iOS and Android versions are currently available, although the product is not 'officially' launched yet, and the WP7 verison (and hopefully soon WP8) are not far behind:
Aegis Shield Mobile - iOS
Aegis Shield Mobile - Android
I've also done a few blog posts over time at http://redth.info
Glad to be a part of the community!
I'm Joseph Hill, Xamarin COO and co-founder. I've many hats (from product management and marketing to evangelism and support), so if you've been in the community for awhile, you've probably bumped into me somewhere.
I'm Andrew, Customer Success Engineer in SF. I hope to help many of you exploring Xamarin! For any Cal fans, Go Bears!
I'm John Sonmez. I'm a Pluralsight author (http://pluralsight.com/training/Authors/Details/john-sonmez). I focus quite a bit on the mobile side of things including courses on Xamarin products.
I also work as a developer currently for TrackAbout Inc, where I am building iOS and Android enterprise-y applications using MonoTouch and Mono for Android and sharing as much code as possible.
I have a few apps in the App store as well. One build with MonoTouch, but I'd like to add some more.
You can find my blog at http://simpleprogrammer.com
Hey, I'm Betai and I'm also a Customer Success Engineer in SF. Don't hesitate to contact me with technical or purchasing questions, or if you just want to chat. Come on @AWay, it's all about Stanford! =P =0)
Hi everyone, I'm Allie! I'm on the Support Team at Xamarin. I also specialize in UX/UI design and can make a mean cappuccino. @betai and @Away have it all wrong though, Cornell Big Red alll the way!
Hi everyone, I'm Bojan, I'm based out of Boston and I do a little bit of everything, mostly focusing on our web properties and infrastructure and operations, including [redacted], and [redacted], etc. :-)
I've been around the Mono community for many moons now, and I'm a decent cook. If you have any questions about our web presence, feel free to ask!
Oh, and @amiller, @betai, and @away all have it all wrong—go Judges! (Just kidding, my alma mater's sports teams aren't very good. ;-)
Hi everyone, I'm Jonathan Pryor, the lead on Mono for Android, interested in compilers, runtime systems, and working on a life-long effort to reduce repetitive code injury. In my copious spare time (ha!) I pretend to maintain Cadenza and Mono.Options.
I also moonlight on support, and ruminate on the age old riddle: Why don't developers read exception messages?!
O hai! I'm Nina, I'm on the docs-dev team. I am working on improving the docs website, which is getting some serious love, as well as making recipes and samples for all to enjoy. I rock an iPhone 4s but refuse to upgrade to iOS 6, because without a working GPS I would probably drive into a black hole.
I like robots, horses (which is the closest one can get to unicorns irl), and (bearded) dragons.
I'm Tom Opgenorth. I work with Bryan on the docs team where I fill the dual roles of token Android fan and token Canadian.
Not so much a fan of avocados as I am of a single malt.
I'm Rolf Bjarne Kvinge. Currently I work on the MonoTouch team, doing my best to make it the most awesome thing ever.
My name is David Siegel and I'm an 'engineer who designs' at Xamarin. I'm working on making our IDE a pleasure to use. I love functional programming and subtle animations!
I'm Mike. I work on the docs team. Articles, seminars, samples, recipes, support and a bit of speaking. Cheers
Hi, I'm Frank Krueger. @praeclarum on Twitter. I'm a developer and chief pedant at Xamarin. I love writing apps, and I love making mobile CPUs hot.
If you have questions on cross-platform development, iOS/Android/Mac APIs, or dynamic system simulation, I'm your man.
I'm Jérémie Laval. I drink Guinness, lol at cats and accessorily hacks on Mono and MonoDevelop (when I'm not striking).
Hey all, my name's Michael Hutchinson, and I work on pretty much every part of MonoDevelop and its interactions with our other products.
A while back I wrote a series of MonoDevelop Tips to help people get more out of MD.
I'm Atsushi Enomoto, part of Mono for Android team. I'm also the only one Xam monkey in the East Asian area (so far) and often talk about Mono-related stuff in some tech. sessions. These days I also maintain mono-reactive, and have interests on music instrumental tools.

My name is Bryan Moulton, and I work with the Support team at Xamarin. I am from Las Vegas so naturally, I like to party.
Hi, I'm Roy Cornelissen. I work as a software architect for Info Support in the Netherlands. Most of the time, I work on mid- to large scale projects for enterprisey customers. Currently working on a SaaS product for workforce management.
Besides that I'm a community leader for the mobile development competence within Info Support. In that role, I work on our cross platform mobile strategy, using Xamarin tools of course.
We do presentations on events suchs as Microsoft TechDays, full day workshops for customers and students. We also put our strategy into practice, building mobile apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and now also Windows 8.
Hi everyone (or g'day, if you prefer), I'm Craig Dunn, aka @conceptdev on twitter. During the day I like to monkey about for Xamarin, and blog in my spare time
Hi! I'm Nic Wise, I'm a MonoTouch developer, living in London, tho I'm from Craig's part of the world (New Zealand, the "better" island). I'm @fastchicken on the twitters and the echo-chamber-tumble-weed-town that is App.Net.
I have an all-Mac household (4 macs, 2 ipads, 2 iphones etc), and all my apps are iOS. I'm slowing getting into Android apps via a Nexus 7 that I have to force myself to use.
I blog fairly regularly, mostly on mobile UX and design type stuff, as thats what most interests me - and always with a Xamarin slant
I'm usually found on the mailing list, tho I suspect I'll be around here a bit more, as well as StackOverflow.
I'm ChrisNTR, I am helping Xamarin out with various different things, focused on Support but help with Community/Evangelism too.
You can normally find me hosting the Xamarin Seminars and often heading around the UK and further afield to chat about all things Xamarin. In my spare time, I have helped contribute to the following two books: Professional iPhone Programming with MonoTouch and .NET/C# and Professional Android Programming with Mono for Android .NET/C#.
I've been neglecting my blog on http://weblogs.asp.net/chrishardy and you can follow me on Twitter @chrisntr
I'm Greg Shackles, a web and mobile developer living in New York City. I've been known to do a fair bit of evangelizing for Xamarin's products over the years, ranging from blog posts, talks, a Mono for Android column for Visual Studio Magazine, Xaminars, and the book Mobile Development with C#.
Outside of tech, I'm a lifelong Yankees fan, a metalhead, craft beer lover, and an aspiring homebrewer.
You can also find me on Twitter at @gshackles
Hey all! I'm Lluis Sanchez (@slluis on Twitter) and at Xamarin I work mostly on the MonoDevelop project and the Android Designer. I'm also the author of some projects upon which MonoDevelop is being built, such as Mono.Addins, NGit (a port of JGit) and XWT. I've been involved in the Mono project for nearly 10 years, during which I worked on remoting, serialization, web services and asp.net, among other parts of the .NET libraries.
Hi!!! I'm Stephen Shaw and love working on mono related things. I'm currently working for Xactware where I'm doing mono for android development. I'm also the the current maintainer of f-spot. Oh, and like to pretend I'm cool by association
Hi! I am Alexander, long time developer run a small company in Oslo, Norway that does mobile development with MonoTouch and Mono for Android. I am a former MS MVP on Device Application Development and a frequent evangelist of MonoTouch and Mono for Android through my blog Agile Mobility. You can read a bit more about me here.
Hi I'm Willem, lead developer for Info Support.
I work closely with Roy Cornelissen to lead the mobile community within Info Support.
We do a lot of talks together on mobile topics, mostly cross-platform related.
Roy talks about iOS/MonoTouch, I do the Mono for Android bits and pieces.
If you ask me what my favorite phone is, I have to say my Nokia Lumia 800. Yes, I do love Android, but I like the lumia better still ;-)
Currently I'm working on an events app called ISKE (Info Support Knowledge Events) trying to get the tablet version out the door.
You can find me around the forum and on stack overflow as Xamarin-insider, trying to help people get more out of the Xamarin products and cross-platform development.
Hi, Adrian here coming from Belfast Northern Ireland. I am new to the mobile development world and my first task has been to explore Xamarin technology's and see if they will work for my company.
Hi, Sri here coming from Singapore. I have been using Mono Touch and Mono for Android to create a Meta Data based Cross Platform Hybrid App Framework using Web and OpenGL technologies, mixing thin (web) and thick client (openGL) architecture in a single code base.
Basically the vision is to enable the development of Apps by any one who knows Html. The t4 build system will use the Html as Meta data to generate a C# based Cross Platform Web/OpenGL App which can be packaged with Native OS Specific Wrappers. It is similar to Phone Gap, but using minimum of Java script, with native functionality exposed through RPC Services to both Web Wrapper as well as OpenGL Wrapper and the UI implemented using Html GUI or OpenGL GUI.
Hopefully will be publishing a TODO List App, A Reference Implementation of a Cross Platform Web App in GitHub in the next few days and a OpenGL App in the next few weeks and launching a SAAS Service in the near future using this Architecture.
Hi everyone. I do marketing for Xamarin and love to hear about the cool apps you all build. Drop me a note when you publish your next app!
In addition to Xamarin, I love biking, hiking, hitting the beach - pretty much anything outdoors. And monkeys. And coffee.
Hello Alex Soto here 24 yrs coming from Mexico SysAdmin on the Mornings, Mobile Dev on the afternoons, Xbox Gamer at nights and Full time Father of 2 beautiful girls and husband of the most lovely girl on the planet
I have used MonoTouch since the very beginning (Novell Days) and I really enjoy it, used it at school whenever I could , and now I have developed some inHouse apps here and there.
I love binding Objective-C libraries which you can find them here and I try to keep them up to date.
You can contact me on Twitter @Dalexsoto or on IRC under the same nickname.
I'm Wally. I DON'T work for Xamarin, but everyone thinks that I do. I love their mobile stuff, though Joseph (Hill) sometimes calls me and blames me for his problems (you will never live that one down). I jumped on MonoTouch when i first heard about it in a press release because it allows devs to target the builtin cocoatouch apis. I have some books on MonoTouch and and Mono for Android. I write training on these products for third parties. I write an occassional article for Dev Pro Connections on MonoTouch. Along with Greg Shackles, we write the Mono for Android column in Visual Studio Magazine. I'm a fanboi of the Xamarin products. In my consulting with with Scalable Development, Inc, I would estimate that I have been doing about 50% mobile development over the past year. I have spoken at various conferences on the Mono mobile products. blah, blah, blah. Oh yeah, I am a god.
Hi I'm Dave Evans, @DaveDev on Twitter, generally in the UK but also San Francisco. Busy developing enterprise cloud solutions that use MonoTouch, MonoMac and soon Mono for Android for client applications. Thinking that the future of .Net is Xamarin...
Hey all, I'm Andy, @andytwittt on Twitter, I'm a .NET developer from the UK and I'm normally busy developing the Apple versions of our client software with MonoTouch and MonoMac. Its been a number of years since I've actually felt like being active in a forum.
