SW Florida .Net Developers Group

Holdin' it down for .Net development on the Platinum Coast of FL

How many times have you seen an app that was available for iOS, Android, and… nobody else?

How many times have you seen an app that was only available for Windows Phone?

Kent Pickard will show you how to publish apps so that nobody gets left out. Using Xamarin, the pre-eminent cross platform mobile dev tool, you can make sure everyone can download your app.

We’re meeting at a new spot this month: Venture X, the swank new co-working facility in Naples, is hosting us on the 27th, starting at 6:30pm. It’s a place of business, so act accordingly.

Patrick Davis will formally take over leadership of Group on Thursday, January 23rd at the Polaris Center. In addition, he will present the topic for the January meeting: Azure for Developers.

Azure for Developers takes on a whole new meaning in that context. Azure is, in many ways, an enterprise technology, whilst many of you are developers pursuing your interests on a developer’s budget. Patrick understands this, and will speak to those concerns, showing you a way to leverage Azure without necessarily being part of an enterprise.

I hope you’ll give him your full support and assistance.

Head on over to and get signed up for the best Group meeting you’ve ever been to: All day, with food, swag, and learning. Saturday, 10/26 at Hodges University in Naples.

People will come from far and wide to show you things you didn’t know, on topics you can all geek out to. This is the ultimate manifestation of the community ethic – people helping each other to become better developers. It’s why this site, and this Group, even exists.

See you there!
