Xamarin Evolve 16 - Training Day 2
Time flies! The second day of training at Xamarin Evolve is over already and I just came back from the awesome opening party in the Darwin Lounge.
The main conference starts tomorrow. I’m honored to be on stage with some industry giants at the Evolve Mobile Leaders Summit track in a panel discussion about The Unique Challenges of Mobile DevOps. But that’s tomorrow!
As for the (other) fun part of Evolve: the Darwin Lounge was opened this evening, accompanied by a huge buffet and a nice range of tasting stands for artisanal chocolate, local beers and hipster coffee 🙂 This tweet sums up how I felt this evening:

So… Xamarin sure knows how to throw a party 🙂 Of course, the Darwin Lounge at Evolve is mainly about cool geek stuff and tech inspiration. There’s lots of that going on as well. Lots of IoT stuff, drones flying around, etcetera. Check out the Twitter timeline for #XamarinEvolve for a great impression of the fun things out there.
Be sure to tune into the Evolve keynote tomorrow at 9am EST. Rumours are that it’ll be spectacular! 😉
