Xamarin.Forms Intro

You must bring a laptop. Don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have wireless Internet access so you can download on-site.

We’ll also touch on some of the requirements to developing an application using Xamarin. Then we will go through the introduction tutorial that is available on the Xamarin site:
