    We will code together and share learning topics related to Xamarin

    Any participants can demo things they have learned, demo projects or discuss strategies for learning new technology.  There will be a short demo showing the Azure dashboard and strategies for using Azure as a back end. We will also hear a brief summary from a book called "Developer Hegemony" which is relevant to developers striving to figure out where they fit in the developer world once they have several years of development under their belt and wish to move from a developer role within a company to a consult role.
