Xamarin.Meetup – Boston Meetup Today: DevOps for Mobile Apps with Dan Hermes

Join us at Microsoft’s NERD Center to learn about DevOps for Mobile Apps! Meet with some of the local Xamarin MVPs and employees while also enjoying some food.

How do we keep our iOS and Android builds organized, tested, and distributed to team members and users who need them, with the correct versions flowing into the app stores? This is DevOps for mobile apps.

Dan Hermes, Xamarin MVP and co-organizer of Boston Mobile C# Developers Group, will discuss the high points of his upcoming edX video course for Microsoft on how to do all of these things using Visual Studio Mobile Center (VSMC). He will talk about developing, deploying and managing mobile applications in DevOps environments. He’ll cover setup and management of VSMC and the testing and deployment of mobile apps. Mobile Center Build, Test, and Distribute are powered by Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), Xamarin Test Cloud, and HockeyApp.  Learn the VSMC workflows that tie all of these tools together.

This talk is for any and all native app developers, not just C#.  Many features of VSMC work for Objective-C and Java just as well as Xamarin.

Xamarin on Azure and Cognitive Services

Mobile development and cloud technologies are very popular right now. If you are a C# developer and already created your first application with Xamarin, you might be interested in learning some more details about Xamarin and Xamarin Forms. You might also want to use all benefits of Azure in your application or jump right into advanced topics and select one (or a couple) Cognitive Services for your application to integrate with. You will be able to get a flavor of all those tools from this talk. Also final demo will add some visual understanding of the topic.
