Xamarin DevDays Hackathon!

Anything Special?
Yes. We’re partnering with Microsoft to bring you all the excitement of a Xamarin DevDay Hackathon – right here in Columbus! Further details @ https://ti.to/xamarin/dev-days-columbus-2017.

The popular Xamarin DevDay events make a stop @ the Windows Developer UG. All day fun, custom mobile tech content & special edition T-shirts await you! Also, please note the April 15th date – little deviation from our usual 3rd Monday meetup. A Saturday event means no one has to take time off from work. Come spend a day with fellow geeks, become a mobile developer ninja and hack your way to win some cool prizes!

Speaker Bio:
We’ll have a few speakers lined up to cover the content.

Sam Basu | Progress – Introduction to Xamarin & Xamarin.Forms!

August Code-Slinging Session — FireStarter !!


As promised, we shall do something very special for our August code-slinging meetup. We have teamed up with Central Ohio Cloud Computing User Group (COCCUG: http:coccug.com) to bring you a full-day developer workshop. We call it the Windows Azure & Windows Phone FireStarter!! We will have the leading MSFT evangelists on Azure & Windows Phone platforms, along with other experts at hand. The idea is to cover a few fundamentals on Azure & Windows Phone with sessions & then go hands-on with some labs. The goal is to arm anyone interested to leverage the cloud infrastructure in mobile applications (not just limited to Windows Phone) and may be build a really cool end-to-end app. You take all the credit!

So, please visit the EventBrite sitehttp://wazwp7firestarter.eventbrite.com/ for details and kindly RSVP. As you can see from the schedule, we have a great day of fun planned out .. and oh, free lunch & prizes!! Come & join us please!

So, come & join us please ..
