TLDR: This is going to be an excellent conference that you don’t want to miss! If you buy a Xamarin Developer Summit ticket within the next 24 hours, you will get a complimentary night at the The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center.
The New Evolve
Since Microsoft purchased Xamarin and ended Xamarin Evolve, there’s been a void in the community. There has been no conference for us to gather, network, learn, share and grow. That was the void Dan Siegel was aiming to fill when he created the @XamDevSummit account and sent out this tweet back in January:
People have been asking for Xamarin Evolve… well get ready for the next best thing. You might want to call it Evolve Redux… we call it the Xamarin Developer Summit. Coming to Houston in July 2019. Be sure to follow us for more updates. #XamDevSummit2019— Xamarin Developer Summit (@XamDevSummit) January 2, 2019
Well, it’s rapidly approaching Xamarin Developer Summit, 2 weeks until the event kicks off! Personally, I’m very excited:
Since founding the Toronto Mobile .NET Developers Group back in May of 2017, I have had the pleasure of interacting with the local Xamarin community. You may not have that luxury. Xamarin Developer Summit would be a great opportunity to interact with mobile developers, build friendships, collaborate and explore ideas.
Houston: Space City
In addition to all the fantastic opportunities of the conference, I’m also looking forward to checking out Houston! I’ll be aiming to get to Space Center Houston as soon as I get a chance. I’m also going to be eating as much local food as possible: chicken-fried steak, Texas BBQ and crawfish!
I hope to see you there!
