Starting out right with Xamarin (2018 Edition)

At the Queensland C# Mobile Developers meetup group's September event, I gave an updated version of my 'Starting out right with Xamarin' presentation from 2015. Since the last iteration, quite a lot has changed in the Xamarin space but many of the principles still held. The talk is a light-hearted but informative overview of things to keep in mind when beginning to work with Xamarin, including:

  • Mobile principles to live by
  • A pop quiz - asking and answering your first big questions
  • A spotlight on some recommended libraries
  • and an extensive roundup of useful Xamarin libraries and resources.

Links for the slides are below. Note that this talk has some truly gratuitous animations - if you want to get in on that the ppt is the way to go.

On the topic of talks, we are always looking for more presenters - message me at the meetup group page if you are interested in speaking!
