Virtual Xamarin and .NET Events in April

James Montemagno

We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. This month we are doing something a little different when it comes to upcoming .NET and Xamarin events. We are shifting our focus to awesome, new ways to stay active in your local community, virtually! There is exciting content from the community, teams at Microsoft, and great videos to “binge” watch all from the comfort of home. If you are a user group leader we are also here to help you throw a virtual event!

Host a Virtual Meetup

If you are a user group leader, we are here to help you host a virtual meetup & find presenters. The .NET Foundation has a great ongoing conversation about several different platforms to host a meetup on. We also recorded a full tutorial with our friend Jon Galloway using Microsoft Teams’ new Live Event feature to host a meetup. If you are using for scheduling your user group events, they recently added a new Online Event Feature to streamline hosting a meetup with one of these services.

Content & Speakers

To spark some ideas for topics to present at your user group, browse our recent online conferences. All content including slides, videos, and code from the recent .NET Conf focus events and the Visual Studio for Mac Refresh(); event are available online.

For speakers, look no further than our amazing Microsoft MVPs, who love to present on all the .NET topics. When in doubt, we are here to help with a new Xamarin User Group Speaker Request Form. Tell us a little about your user group, dates you are looking to host, and what topic you are interested in. Then, we will try to pair you with someone from the Xamarin team to present at your user group!

Watch a Streamer

You may already know that the .NET teams host weekly live community stand-ups to participate in. However, did you know that the Xamarin community is also super active on live-streaming sites, such as Twitch?

Last week, was our largest virtual Xamarin event of the year with .NET Conf – Focus on Xamarin.
