Tuesday October 28th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

October 28th, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Nate Rickard with a talk on Xamarin: Enabling Developers to Create Native iOS, Android, Mac, & Windows apps in C#.

Abstract: Nate will discuss the Xamarin platform and how their approach to cross platform mobile compares to other approaches. Additionally, the full slate of Xamarin’s product offerings will be discussed. This is a great "Xamarin 101" type of overview for those who have little to no experience or research into the Xamarin platform.

Bio: Nate Rickard has been actively designing and developing software since 2002, focusing on Microsoft technologies and specializing in the .NET framework. His career began in the Fortune 500 corporate environment, where he developed data driven web applications and enterprise information systems for insurance, health care, and other large companies. He also spent a number of years writing multitier Windows software in the consumer electronics and audio/video industry. He’s excited to now be focusing on delivering rich internet solutions, developing web and distributed Internet, and mobile applications.

During the October meeting we will be holding nominations for the CINNUG directors. Only supporting members (attended 3 of the last 6 meetings including September) are permitted to nominate / be nominated. We will be electing a Lead Director as well as 3 Directors (Speaker Coordinator, Finance, Marketing) during the November meeting.

As some of you may have noticed we tried out a new format for the September meeting which consisted of a short presentation before the headliner in lieu of CINARC (Cincinnati Software Architecture Group) following the headliner. We received some feedback from the group and will go back to the old format of holding CINARC following pizza. This session will feature more discussion on topics chosen the night of the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss issues of software architecture relevant to the members of the community.

Pizza and drinks will be provided by our sponsors.

Please make a note that November meeting will be on Tuesday November 18, which is a week earlier than normal schedule to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday. On deck for the November meeting are lightning talks from Mike Wood (Azure Automation), Mike Levy (Overview of RabbitMQ), Charlie Retzler (Developer Tools), and Parag Joshi (NFC).
