Last week, The Xamarin Saturday took place in Toronto. I was lucky enough to assist and again, the trip from Arizona was worth it every min.
I won’t go too deep in details about the conference because I believe Andrew Hoefling did a great recap here but at least wanted to put some of my impressions here so I can comeback later and reminisce.
A few months back my great friend Joche Ojeda did a post on a CodeRush Template for Xamarin forms bindable property and to quote him exactly:
“From time to time I realize that a lot of the stuff I’m writing is repetitive and complex, so that is the perfect time to create a new code rush custom template, behold the new template xfbp (xamarin forms bindable property).”
Well, behold some other templates for XAF, Xamarin, Prism and Reactive UI.
Last month, I was in Houston at the Xamarin Developer Summit, a conference by the community and for the community, and I have to admit it was everything I expected and more. You read blogs about past events (Microsoft Build, Evolve, Ignite) but nothing compare to actually attending one.
It was good to meet a large number of community members that you follow daily on twitter, read their articles and actually ask them anything in person.
