Xamarin 4 was just announced including some amazing new features and enhancements including the all new Xamarin Mac Agent and Xamarin.Forms 2.0 for enterprise grade mobile development, 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.

Each attendee will receive Xamarin swag, a code for Xamarin Test Cloud hours, and ONE lucky attendee will be chosen for the Xamarin Business License giveaway!

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 it accelerate their cross-platform development introducing 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 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.
