Join us for a Crash Courses about XAML and Xamarin.Forms, we are excited to host Taylor Dunworth as she walks us through the basics of mobile app development using XAML and Xamarin.Forms!

We’ll be talking through the basics of mobile app development using XAML and Xamarin.Forms, the benefits of Xamarin.Forms and its shared code for both Android and iOS, and the process of building out a simple mobile app.

This Crash Course is Intended to be a listen and learn event, but if attendee already has mobile dev requirements on their computer (Xcode, Android SDK, Java SDK, and Visual Studio) installed, then they are welcome to code along during the last portion of the crash course


- Do attendees need to bring a laptop? No
- Do attendees need to have certain programs? No, unless they intend to code along, which is not intended. If so, Xcode, Android SDK, Java SDK, and Visual Studio will be necessary. I will not be spending time helping with the setup of those though.
- Do attendees need previous experience? How much? Basic C# understanding is helpful but not required
