New YouTube Channel and XAFers Training

Yes I did, inspired by my friend and DevExpress MVP Joche I decided to give it a try and start my own channel, also Javier Suarez in .Net Conf Xamarin sounds like me (a thick Spanish accent) so why not? If you are interested in XAF, XPO and Xamarin (and if you are here, you probably are) then subscribe and I will try to have new content every 15 days or at least monthly.

What would you guys think about a series of videos reviewing all XAF modules, the ones from DevExpress first and then all modules done by the community?

Here is the link for the channel:

Lastly, I am really excited to say that xafers.training is finally live. We plan to host sessions two Saturdays a month covering XAF, XPO, Xamarin and a lot more. We are starting with 5 courses:

Well, that is it for today. See you next time. XAF out!
