We’re excited to announce that XABLU will be the official organizer of a Xamarin Dev Day at our headquarters in Hengelo, the Netherlands on Saturday, July 22nd, 2017. Our team has followed the growing popularity of these international training days online for some time, and we’ve been looking forward to the chance to host our own. We can’t wait to bring the event to our hometown!
What is a Xamarin Dev Day?
Xamarin Dev Days are one-day training events designed by Xamarin to give participants the knowledge they need to build a new app by the end of the day! The format is a series of three learning sessions in the morning, each led by a different expert, followed by a hands-on lab in the afternoon where developers will put their new skills to use. The agenda features the following sessions:
- Introduction to Xamarin by Xamarin Consultant Marc Bruins
- Cross Platform UI with Xamarin.Forms by Microsoft & Xamarin MVP Martijn van Dijk
- Connected Apps with Azure by Senior Xamarin Developer Maurits van Beusekom
- Hands-on lab: Build a connected app with Xamarin.Forms and Azure with Harry ten Berge
Xamarin Dev Days are organized by the Xamarin community all around the world – there will even be one taking place in Sydney, Australia on the same day as our event!
What will I learn?
Xamarin Dev Days are geared towards mobile app developers who are new to or just getting started with Xamarin, but developers at all levels of experience will learn something new, as each speaker will bring their own expertise and advice to the table. The morning will begin with an Intro to Xamarin session and quickly move towards the more advanced topics of Xamarin.Forms and Azure-connected apps. By mid-afternoon you’ll be deep into building your own Xamarin app!
Xamarin Dev Days Hengelo is free, but you’ll need to reserve your place (spots are limited!) on the official event page here, where you’ll also find full agenda, location and preparation details. We can’t wait to see you there!
