St. Louis ALT.NET Meetup: The Rise of Xamarin

We had a great meetup last night and the room was packed! Thanks to everyone that came out and asked such great questions.

I really enjoyed meeting so many new people from in and around the St. Louis .NET community.

And a big thanks also to Xamarin for providing the big box of goodies. They were gone in a blink. Who knew “adults” would be so ravenous for stuffed animal toys?!

Automated UI Testing: Xamarin Test Cloud & Calabash

At our monthly Interactive Developers of St. Louis meeting last night I presented this overview of the newly announced Xamarin Test Cloud. We then went deeper into Calabash exploring the various pieces making up a test, as well as how to inspect an application’s UI interactively via console. Big thanks to all that came out!
