Xamarin Dev Days – Jacksonville

Xamarin Dev Days JAX was on September 12, 2015 and it truly was “more than just a hackathon” and it was a great success. Xamarin super team (Krystin Stutesman and John Davis) did great job presenting, teaching, answering tough questions and helping one on one with setup and labs, TekSystems made sure we had a plenty of food for breakfast and lunch and I had a great time presenting about MVVM + Xamarin Forms as well as helping out with organizing our event.

Big thanks go to Dr Roy Swapnoneel and School of Computing University of North Florida for allowing us to use their auditorium.

Shortly after the breakfast, Krystin Stutesman, the newest Xamarin Evangelist   kicked off Xamarin Dev Day with two sessions: “Developing iOS & Android Apps in C#” and “Introduction to Xamarin.Forms, Insights, and Test Cloud”, she did an excellent job.

After Krystin, I presented “Intro to MVVM in 30 min”
