The company I work for, Pillar Technology, announced an internal mobile app development contest last week. The contest will run for 4.5 months and award fabulous prizes but for me most the exciting part is being able to evangelize using the Xamarin platform.
One of the first things I did was setup is a series of lunch and learns. Somehow; I thought it would be a good idea to drive a series of 10 DAILY lunch and learns over the next 2 weeks. Let me repeat that: DAILY, 1 hour lunch and learns for the next 2 weeks!
These lunch and learns will cover the Xamarin ecosystem, Mobile App Development best practices and Mobile Craftsmanship.
Today was the first lunch and learn; we had 10 people on GoToMeeting all ordering t-shirts by walking through the Xamarin Store App!
I’m ‘super excited’ to see more co-workers in C# shirts representing #TeamXamarin over the next few months of the contest.
From the initial feedback it looks like we will have applications developed for iOS, Android, Xamarin.Forms (xplat) and SpriteKit.
I look forward to helping each team build their app, create examples, and blog posts for them long the way.
