Xamarin 4! Everything you need to know to Build Great Mobile Apps

Come celebrate Xamarin 4 with cake, food, and learning how to build, test, monitor, and accelerate native iOS, Android, and Windows Phone mobile app development in C#, and about the new features in Xamarin 4.

Xamarin 4 was recently announced including some great new features and enhancements including, updates to Mono integrating implementations from the newly open source .Net, the all new Xamarin Mac Agent for building iOS from Visual Studio, Xamarin.Forms 2.0, the brand new Test Recorder, and free crash reporting with the General Availability of Xamarin Insights. This month we will take a look at all the new enhancements into iOS and Android Development in C# with Xamarin and all of the latest features that were just released. 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.

RSVP here:

Here are just a few topics that we will cover:

Xamarin.Forms 2.0: Xamarin developers have taken advantage of a shared business logic backend for years, but with the introduction of Xamarin.Forms with Xamarin 3 it accelerate their cross-platform development introducing a shared user interface library and full MVVM Framework. Xamarin.Forms 2.0 introduces support for the latest iOS 9 and Android Marshmallow features including material design, support for precompiled XAML, preview support for Universal Windows Platform apps, several new gestures such as pull-to-refresh, rotate, pinch and panning, improvements to documentation, and 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 will 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 is 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.
