What is Xamarin Hack Day?
Xamarin Hack Days are for Xamarin Developers or people who want to learn Xamarin and win some cool prizes.
Don’t miss out on your chance to win one of two Windows Phones, courtesy of Microsoft Slovenia!
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.
We recommend 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.

What should I bring?
We strongly recommend downloading and installing the Xamarin platform before coming. The installation can take some time, and may require that you update other software on your system before it can be installed. Do you know the stuff to install? So bring a laptop on the day with Xamarin already setup and installed so we can dive straight into it. This can be either a Mac or Windows based system.
We also recommend installing the Visual Studio 2015 RC. There are some big changes coming in Visual Studio 2015, and we’ll have some extra content available on the day for those who are interested.
Don’t forget to bring your love of learning and questions for our experts!
Lastly, bring some food and drink to keep your brain powered throughout the day. There will not be catering.
