7:45pm – Zero to Mobile Hero - Intro to Xamarin and Azure DevOps - Luce Carter - Developer Technologies MVP

"You can be faced with a nightmare of Xcode, Android Studio, Objective C, Swift and other options. This means not only learning multiple languages and frameworks but also having to support two different codebases for the same application. But Xamarin Native and Xamarin.Forms offer a powerful, cross-platform development solution for .NET developers looking to target smartphones, tablets, TV’s, computers and IoT devices.

In this talk, Luce shares what Xamarin is including Native and Xamarin.Forms for both C# and F#, how to get started creating a simple HelloWorld app from scratch and a more complex example (will involve at least one Azure service including Cognitive Services for facial recognition). Also how to use Azure DevOps for Continuous Integration and some awesome examples of apps written using Xamarin including ones used to save lives!

Luce will take examples from
