Next Meetup

Vector Graphics with Xamarin
We'll be discussing how to use scalable graphic resources in Xamarin applications as an alternative for bitmap images. Instead of creating multiple resolutions of the same bitmap, I'll show various ways of using SVG and other vector resources to have a single image be used for multiple resolutions and platforms. We'll also show how images can be converted to code as structured objects that can be manipulated at runtime. Some familiarity with Xamarin is expected.
