November Topic - Tips and Tricks to Boost Performance in Your Xamarin Apps
It's one thing for software to work correctly, and quite another for it to work quickly. Ideally we want both, right? Xamarin, Xamarin.Forms, and Mono are all marketed as tools that can bring native performance with a shared codebase. As with any language, library, or framework though, we have to be careful -- just because something is native doesn't mean that everything you write with it is automatically fast!
In this talk, we'll dig in to some of the internals of .NET and Xamarin.Forms that you're probably using with every project and considering "good enough", not knowing that a few minor tweaks here and there could be giving your app the little speed kick your users crave. Additionally, we'll discuss why each of the tricks we talks about could give you better results. You'll walk away with a handful of common patterns you can apply to score some easy wins, and some of them will even work for non-mobile projects!
Presented by Alan Grgic
Alan Grgic has written C# applications in some form or fashion for the past decade and Xamarin apps for about half that time. A Xamarin.Forms contributor and Pythonista, Alan has also dabbled extensively in all of your favorite front-end JS buzzwords of the month, including excaliburjs, a game engine he collaborates on with other MN local devs. When not writing code, he enjoys partaking in his monolithic board game collection and a good scotch.
About the Group
Led by local developers, the Minnesota Enterprise Mobile User Group is a place to come together to share knowledge, experiences, and lessons learned with the development community regarding enterprise mobile development, with a focus on mobile cross-platform application development and the Xamarin toolset. Our goal is to cover all areas of the Enterprise Mobile landscape.
