RSVP here:

Come celebrate Xamarin 4 with cake, pizza, and learn how to build, test, monitor, and accelerate native iOS and Android mobile app development in C#. Xamarin 4 was just announced, and includes new features and enhancements such as: the all new Xamarin Mac Agent, Xamarin.Forms 2.0 for cross-platform user interfaces, the brand new Test Recorder, and free crash reporting with the general availability of Xamarin Insights. There will be something for everyone in this content packed meetup no matter if you are new or have been developing with Xamarin for some time.

We’ll cover:

· Xamarin.Forms 2.0: Xamarin developers have taken advantage of a shared business logic backend for years, but Xamarin.Forms accelerates their cross-platform development with a shared user interface library and full MVVM Framework. Xamarin.Forms 2.0 takes advantage of the latest iOS 9 and Android Marshmallow features including material design, introduces several new gestures such as pull-to-refresh, rotate, pinch, and panning, as well as significant performance enhancements.

· Xamarin Test Cloud & the Test Recorder: Xamarin developers are able to take advantage of their free Test Cloud time to test their applications on over 2,000 iOS and Android devices. We’ll take a look at the Test Cloud and see how the brand new Test Recorder simplifies the creation of complex tests to get you testing faster.

· Xamarin Insights: Now generally available with completely free crash reporting for Xamarin developers, giving you full native and managed crash reports and stack traces with just a single line of code. With a full cross-platform SDK you can easily report exceptions, track events, and gather additional information about the devices your app is running on.
