Welcome to the Microsoft Makers & App Developers of New Jersey Meetup! (#MMADNJ)
Our MISSION: To bring together developers & makers who are building modern apps in the Microsoft ecosystem for mobile & IoT devices. From Windows 10 to other platforms, our goal is to help you get everything you need to design, build & publish apps, games & gadgets, and turn them into successful ventures.
Each month we host presentations and workshops for Mobile App, Game & IoT developers in New Jersey, led by our team of Microsoft Technical Evangelists, MVP and other community experts. We welcome all levels of coders - professionals, entrepreneurs and students - and we are committed to helping developers be successful with their mobile & device apps.
What we cover:
Development of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps for Windows 10 & Windows 10 Mobile: Overviews, UI design, deep dives into app models, specific SDKs, libraries, tips & tricks, etc.
Cross-platform technologies - such as Xamarin, .NET Core or Cordova - that let developers target more than one mobile platform.
Development for the Internet of Things (IoT), including Windows 10 IoT Core, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Particle, ESP8266, Intel devices, general electronics, and much more.
Game development for the Windows 10 platform - for desktops, tablets, phones & Xbox - using Unity, GameMaker, Construct2, XNA/MonoGame, C++/DirectX, etc.
Microsoft Cloud for app & IoT developers, Azure App Services, Notifications, IoT Hubs, Stream Analytics, storage & Big Data, DevOps, etc.
Innovation topics like Virtual Reality & Mixed Reality on Windows Holographic with HoloLens and other devices, hands-free input with Kinect, wearables, etc.
All members who attend the monthly Meetup can win raffle prizes from Microsoft and our sponsors such as Xbox games, books, and other swag (as available). Members also get access to other sponsor discounts and exclusive offers for possible beta programs or insider programs. We typically meet on the third Tuesday evening of every month at the Microsoft office in Iselin, NJ, and serve dinner (usually pizza & sodas) to all attendees for free. We also host special sessions, roundtables, office hours and workshops to provide technical assistance with building your apps and IoT gadgets.
