What is Xamarin Hack Day?
Xamarin Hack Days are for Xamarin Developers or people who want to learn Xamarin.
There will be something for everyone, experienced Xamarin developers can share ideas with other experienced developers. If you’re a beginner then there’s plenty to learn on the day.
It’s recommended that attendees bring their own laptop on the day with Xamarin already setup and installed. Do you know the stuff to install? If you’ve never played with Xamarin before it would be good to do a little bit of learning before the day but it’s not a requirement as all are welcome.
