Durban Xamarin User Group Monthly Meetup 15 June 2017

We did it! We have successfully launched the Durban Xamarin User Group 🙂 It was a fantastic evening filled with Xamarin.

We started the evening off with some pizza 🍕🍕🍕

Promptly we kicked off at 6 PM, a bit of an oddity for Durban events.

The organisational team were introduced. I also took this time to explain that the UG is a community fueled event, my role is to help maintain the momentum. While on this topic, if you would like to speak at a future meetup, get in contact will me and we will schedule it in.

The evening was mostly made up of the session by Allan and Matthew who very generously flew in from Cape Town.

Allan gave us the low down on “What is Xamarin?” Spanning architecture approaches, native vs forms and even touched on some DevOps for Xamarin dev.


Next up was Matthew with a Lightning round of what was announced at Build 2017. Matthew was brave enough to come up and demo preview bits like the Live Player that were announced and they all mostly worked  🙌


It goes without saying we appreciate all the help we received to make this first meetup happen. Thanks to immedia for hosting us in their space as well as feeding us with pizza, again thanks to  Allan and Matthew for flying in.

The first DXUG done ✔️

See you at the next meetup!
