Dutch Mobile & Azure Meetup Crossover


We'll be doing an awesome crossover with our friends over at the Dutch Azure Meetup ( https://www.meetup.com/Dutch-Azure-Meetup/events/247188521/ )!

Expect Xamarin, Azure, hands-on practice and loads of fun! Don't forget to bring your laptop.

18:00 Doors open & Dinner

18:40 - 19:00 Mobile: Xamarin & Xamarin.Forms
Learn how to build an app using Xamarin and let's go over some new announcements around Xamarin.Forms 3.

19:00 - 19:20 Azure: Business Layer
The first steps in the Azure cloud to host the back-end of your app. Think about Serverless, App Services, AKS, Service Fabric. What to choose?

19:20 - 19:40 Azure: Data Layer
Let's store the data of our application in Azure. Would you go for Storage, SQL and/or CosmosDB or even Azure Mobile apps? Let's debate the pros and cons.

19:40 - 21:00 Hands-on: Mobile & Azure
With all our knowledge about Xamarin and Azure: Let's build a full solution! Use Xamarin.Forms, deploy to Azure App Services and store data in CosmosDB. The hosts of the evening will provide you with some bootstrap-code to get you up and running quickly.

21:00 Closing & drinks

Due to the nature of this crossover, don't expect a full deep-dive into these technologies. Expect some inspiring level 200 sessions that give you a great overview to build apps with Xamarin and use the power of Azure in combination with some hands-on experience!
