    Hi all - at the beginning of the last meetup someone made an announcement around a design book they were writing. I didn't get your name! Could you reach out to me? Thanks.

    Any and all feedback from the event would be great!

    This is a technology stack that I have been spending a lot of time with lately. I have 3 apps in the pipeline all using it. It's a pretty broad subject area, so I'd be curious to hear if anyone wants to deep dive into a particular aspect.

      Sure, I touch on it in the talk. I will happily stay to have a deeper discussion afterwards as well.

      I have a consumer app on iOS, Android and Window 8.1 (not phone). All developed using native code. We are still debating whether to use Xamarin or PhoneGap as all our business logic is in the service stack using AWS and Azure (both). I would love to hear more about what has been your experience working on XAMARIN and if it really helps to use common platform? or any challenges that we should be aware of.
