Introducing the Xamarin Seminars

Xaminar Logo

This week will see our first Xamarin Seminar (or what we sometimes like to call a “Xaminar”).

The Xamarin Seminars will be online presentations, every two weeks, to learn about cool things you can do with MonoTouch and Mono for Android.  Each session will feature a short, 20-30 minute presentation from a Xamarin engineer, or a member of our community, followed by a live Q&A session where you can get your questions answered. If you can’t make the live presentation, everything will be archived on YouTube.

The first seminar is Getting Started with CoreGraphics, presented by Mike Bluestein.  Mike has been an active member of the community since MonoTouch launched, and recently joined Xamarin’s excellent documentation team. He’ll show you how to get to grips with creating 2D graphics and modify PDF files on the fly within your MonoTouch applications.

The session will be happening on Thursday 26th January 2012 at 11am EST (4pm UTC).  If you attend live, bring your questions to the short Q&A at the end, if you can’t make it, don’t worry – Xaminars will be recorded and uploaded onto our YouTube channel –

Register via GoToWebinar (you can even join us on your iPhone, iPad or Android phone with their GoToMeeting app) for the first Xaminar from this URL here:

We have a couple of additional sessions planned as well, so mark your calendars:

  • Thursday 9th February 2012 at 11am EST – Top 5 features of Ice Cream Sandwich with Mono for Android 4.0 with Mike Bluestein
  • Thursday 23rd February 2012 at 11am EST – Third party libraries in MonoTouch and Mono for Android with James Clancey

And in other news… Tweet! Tweet!

We’ve updated our Twitter address to @xamarinhq.  Make sure you follow us!   Of course, we’ll be tweeting out before Xamarin Seminars to make sure you don’t miss them.  And following @xamarinhq is a great way to stay up to date on the newest news about new features for MonoTouch and Mono for Android.  We have some news there, too.  Stay tuned!
