We have 2 more great speakers and talks lined up for you in Feb.

Talk 1: Introduction to Xamarin - By Nic Wise

We'll have a look at the Xamarin stack, and how it can be used to create cross platform mobile apps using the language we all know and love, C# (and F#!). I'll touch on the main bits of the Xamarin stack, Xamarin.Forms and MVVMCross. This will be a fairly high level overview, rather than a deep dive.

Nic Wise worked in the mobile space before it was cool, but also before it made either money or sense. He has worked on a wide variety

of projects from point of sale to email archiving, and still gets a kick out of other people using apps he's written.

Presently he's a mobile developer at ANZ Bank.

He used to live in London but now calls Waiheke Island home, and can usually be found fairly close to an espresso or a bike.

Talk 2: DevOps - Pete Goodman

What does devops smell like? Do I need the smell of devops in my life? Does your devops smell like my devops?

We will explore all these questions and more as we look at some of the drivers, theory, practises and tools as they apply to the .Net ecosystem.

Pete Goodman has worked in various .net development roles in the UK and New Zealand. Today he works as part of the awesome superstar strike-team at Pushpay where he has been doing a lot of devops related stuff of late. When he's not working Pete enjoys his OSS projects, Tai Chi and getting older and fatter while trying to get younger and thinner.

Come along to meet other devs, drink beer, eat pizza and hear good talks. Hope to see you there.
