Double Bill: Advanced Web Deploy / Building Android Apps with Xamarin
Thu 10 March 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 GMT
Advanced Techniques for Web Deploy (msdeploy) to simplify the deployment of web applications
If you're still deploying your applications from inside the Visual Studio IDE, you're doing it wrong! The Publish/Deploy buttons should be completely removed from Visual Studio. Learn how to rely on an independent build server for continuous integration and see how you can standardize the packaging process of your web applications for easy deployment to any environment. Build a generic package once and only inject environment-specific values at deployment time. This session will show you to become the perfect friend of your release management team.

Building your first real-world Android app using Xamarin in just 60 minutes
Do you have a great knowledge about C#? Maybe you’ve already built a great mobile app on Windows Phone or Windows 8 or even Windows 10? Would you like to be able to use your knowledge to build an Android app without having to resort to other languages or IDEs? This is possible using Xamarin!
In this session, Gill Cleeren will take you through the creation of your first Android application: Joe’s Coffee Store. Along the way, you will learn the basic concepts of Android such as Activities and see how we can use these from Xamarin.Android. We’ll need to connect with services to get access to data and we’ll learn how to navigate in the app. You’ll see we can do this all of this directly from Visual Studio. We will finish the session by looking at how we can deploy the application to the Google Play Store so it’s ready for our users!
You’ll walk away wanting to port your code to Android!
